  • Lost on datums

    How do I go about programing anything on this part with datum a like this? Untitled.png

      Are you sure datum -A- is not defined anywhere else on the print? If so, I would ask your customer for clarification on what feature they want you to use for datum -A-, because it is not clearly defined in the view shown. Datum -C- is the 3.2 width. In ASME, you cannot have zone modifiers on a symmetry callout or a concentricity callout. This looks like an ISO print so I'm not sure, but this may also be an issue.

        No its not. In fact it actually is on the print in 1 other different spot. I asked the designers what they wanted. The really did not know what they really needed measured. I took it to my boss and he agreed it could not be measured as drawn.

      I have only encountered an offset Datum like that as a tertiary.
      Measured A, Measured B, Measured the physical C then passed the measured data through a generic feature to always force 'C' to be at the described BSC.

      It was a challenge, but is doable thanks to generic features.
