  • Updating alignments in 4.1

    Here's a simple question...

    I have a plate with two holes that I am measuring for my alignment. We will call the plate face -A- and the two holes B1 and B2. After performing the alignment, I split the difference between B1 and B2 to balance the holes and then I measure the existing features.

    Now, once I measure the existing features, I may decide that I need to shift the alignment in one if not two of the axes to balance out the measured features, still keeping B1 and B2 within tolerance.

    My question is that I believe in 3.7MR2 I used to be able to update the alignment, answer 'NO' to updating the nominals and then have my measured values update accordingly WITHOUT having to run the program again. I would then see a good report and be done.

    It seems in version 4.1 I have to RUN THE PROGRAM AGAIN in order to get an updated report. Am I missing something here?

    Any input is appreciated.

    I think it has been since V3.2063 that you were able to do this. I think that starting with V3.5 you had to re-measure the features to get the new results.

      Or you could F9 each dimension in 3.5 anyway that updates it.. still a pain tho

        3.2063 Since that Version, its like B&S keeps tying to re-invent the wheel or the Mona Lisa. Why could that not leave well enough alone?
