  • Angle measurement

    I wrote a single program for multiple part #'s. Each part has a .250 hole at 30° increments. So one part the Ø is at 0° another is at 30°, 60°, 90°,120°,ect.... I only use one .250 Ø feature & assign the angle depending on which part # you choose from the input box. My issue is the angle measurement result will come up as 30° sometimes & & -150° sometimes. Or 60° sometimes & -120° sometimes. How do I get this to stop?

    Have you tried adding +0 or *1 to the dimension nominal value?

      Could it be an alignment issue? I agree with Mike Ruff. I use +0 on every nominal to be safe, but I still wouldn't think that multiple runs would give different angle values unless something is wrong with the code. (Alignment or workplane.)
      Can you post some code?

        Control the NOMINAL value of the angle measurement with variables & IF statements that are tied to the operator's part number input question that you already have set up.

        If you post your code we can get a better look at what you're doing and then give you something that works for you.
