  • point to point distances - (3d)

    Getting wacky numbers here. Alignment is set. Points are taken along the x-axis. I'm doing a 3D distance (X). The distance is not matching what i get subtracting one of the points (x) to the other (x).
    I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

    Are you in the correct viewing plane?

    Why are you using 3d?

    If it is a point to point distance, you should be using 2d, in along the correct axis.

      3-D will give you the total deviaiton betwee the points in 3-D space. If there is a Y axis or Z axis difference, it will be incuded in the result along with the X axis deviation. If you only want the X difference, use 2-D distance (IN the Z workplane) parrellel to the X axis or PERP to the Y axis.

              Ouch !!

              I'll have to comfort myself with some good Scotch !!

              Would anyone care to join me? It's been a long week.

              Things are becoming "interesting" around here. Our facility is "transitioning" the business out of our "little" plant to a couple of the "bigger" sister facilities.

              Don't know where I'll be headed to. Hopefully, it will be somewhere that I can continue to associate myself with you good "folk".

                Pete,

                Land that job in Benton Harbor and you'll be in the right country and the right state and best of all close enough for a homebrew every so often!
