  • Reporting Individual points on Surface Profile

    I have a program written out for a part that I am checking, but the customer wants me to send the report in a different format. He wants to have a picture of the CAD with an arrow pointing to and labeling each of the surface profile points (I have 140 points so It will take quite a few pages) and showing off how far away it is from nominal.

    My guess is I could do this somewhere in the Text and Cad section, but I can't find a way to have the report label each point. My guess is I am missing something very basic.

    I have a picture attached of an example of something very similar to what I need. Thanks

    Maybe try the DIMINFO option. INSERT ~ REPORT COMMAND ~ DIM INFO.
    You get something that looks like this:

      Point info labels also work well for what you need to show. I made a short tutorial video on this subject last year. If you're interested, you can watch it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnU8SRiEcgo

        Another related question. How Can I get my Text and CAD report to report more features per page? I went in and edited the report template so the CAD picture would be smaller in order to have more room for information on one page. I added some labels and leader lines, but it is still only reporting 3 features per page. Something I am missing?

          You should be able to increase the label count by right clicking your cad image and selecting "Edit Object." There's a place near the top where you can increase/decrease your label count.
