  • Measure distance from grid to center of hole

    Hi, I am a newbie to PC-DMIS and to this site. However, I have a question.

    Can PC-DMIS measure the distance from the grid value to the center of a hole?

    Just like it shown in the attached picture.

    I imported the CAD file, and it has the grid. Still figuring out how to get the value of 4.66 like the one shown in attached picture.

    Please help.. thanks.

    Simply.... No... but you can build and alignment, shift your zero position to the grid line nominal and output the hole... this would give you the deviation of the hole from the grid line but really you should measure it relative to the print.

      I just love those point in space measurements.
      Since I gave up hope I feel much better !!!

        I agree with Ken. Take one of those parts that you are measuring and throw it at the designer.

          You could create an offset or generic point (or line) on the gridline and dimension to that.

              Sir George is correct, and so is Dandrewscawinski. Whut a pain n the ****.

              Time for an engineer joke:

              Three engineers were on there way home from a convention. The traffic was very heavy, so they agreed to turn on the radio for a traffic report. The announcer blared: "Use caution on highway 12! A crazed motorist is driving in the wrong direction!"
              The engineers laughed: "Ha!" they exclaimed, "It's more like a thousand of them!"
