  • Open slot

    I've got issues with a part that has an angled open slot...;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAPABAP///wAAACH5BAEKAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAICRAEAOw==

    The slot is Datum C and has to be reported (with MMC )as TP to A (the plane) and B (a hole), as well as having various other holes reported to A, B and C (the slot).

    What's the best method for measuring the slot, so that I can report as required?

    Measure the two side walls as either planes or lines and construct a width from them.

      I have also measured as above but I used variables to bring the data from the line into creating a generic circle for the ability for the software to perform datum shift that was allowed.
