  • How can you tell if a program has activated Cad=Part?

    I was asked "How can you tell if a program has activated Cad=Part?" I looked around and could not tell. But I thought it was a good question.

    Well, if you look at OPERATION ~ GRAPHICS DISPLAY WINDOW there should be CAD EQUALS PART, if there is a check to the left, then it SHOULD be CAD=PART. HOWEVER, I have found in V3.7 MR3 that if you go and make a tweak to your 3-2-1 alignment, then click on CAD=PART (to get the cad data set to the NEW alignment values) it will NOT do it with a single click, you have to do it twice (another ADDED bug in a 'final' release of a version to get you to keep your SMA up to date).

      In 4.2 you would go to OPERATIONS|GRAPHICS DISPLAY WINDOW|CAD=PART should have a check mark next to it if in use.

        Thanks, now I remember. I started yesterday at 6am. Pulled a nooner to take my mother and daughter to the Dallas Aquarium. Got a call back. Came back at 930pm and stayed til 230am and was back at 6am. My brains not functioning correctly today.

                        Not bad newbies. Just try and keep up.

                        In the automotive world it means " cutting out of work at noon." Now I do not know what it means in Texas? But dude's we hold our "Mothers" sacred here. Be nice. Though I did laugh my a$$ off when I read what it means out there.

                            What Matt is saying is the best way .You can also tell by The Graphic Display of the Probe and the cad model. Although on occasion the visual will look like the probe is driving into the part (ball comp). Even though cad =part has been selected. The demons like to play games!!

                              Wow, Matt! Moving up are ya? I mean it must be cool to have your own personal spokesperson. So do I stop pm'ing you and send them to AJ too?
