The attached part has a conical profile that I need to construct a cone from. I will use this cone axis to align my Y axis to for my machine alignment then will measure with more points to report the form of said cone. I measured vector points for the machine alignemnt and constructed a cone which constructed in the correct direction, but with incorrect dimensions both from the CAD model and the measured. I know the model is correct as I created it. The cone should have a 15° included angle (7.5° per side.) Nonetheless I used that to align my axis and began a measurement routine. Measuring the vector points for the cone and constructing the second time either fails, or creates a cone with an axis in the Z when is should be in the Y.

I would appreciate any help from someone who has knowledge of constructed cones.
