  • equating alignment

    Just wanted to know if I am doing this right, created alignment using pins to locate center. Reset part on fixture. fixture moved.. used two other known holes on same axis created alignment. then used equate alignment to bring two together. Is this the right procedure. mid point checks ok. but first two pins check off set in y both in same direction .050. ? Nobody else here to bounce this one on thanks

    Nope, not for a while has EQUATE worked like that. If you moved your fixture AFTER you aligned it, simply RUN the alignment portion of your program.

    IF you need to use EQUATE, the features used for BOTH alignments MUST be the same feature, exactly. Not 'close', not 'almost', but the exact same features from the previous alignment.
