taking a thickness measurement on a spherical surface
We have a part with a spherical surface in it that requires a thickness measurement. How can this be done? Construct a line of some hrough the two surfaces?
Hopefully you have enough surface to get a good Sphere. If so, then one really easy way is to translate to the sphere and sample radial points along the same vector on both sides and report 3D Distance.

HTH,
Never thought of that Bill. Cool idea.
When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

Well, seems a pretty safe assumption to me. If it wasn't then it would be a pretty dumb callout to ask for thinkness UNLESS you had a specified Gage Point. Wouldn't it?

So I have a family of parts(pucks) with a convex(out of) or concave(into) top surface.
The CMM seems to have trouble accurately measuring this sphere,...
My part is half of a sphere that is not split exactly on center, when I do an auto circle the measured value dosent seem to be correct. I have checked...
I am measuring the inside of a spherical feature, since I am inside the sphere I can't really use the auto sphere feature. I measured several auto circles...
I am measuring a sphere that is only in 2 locations 180deg apart. In auto sphere it wants to take hits through out the whole sphere (3D), how can I change...
