  • offset and rotate lines

    I am having a problem with a true position. The callout is for 2 holes on the side of this part. What I have is datum A 3 point plane a diameter for datum B and datum C. One the left side of the part is 2 holes with a true position callout to A B C . But what they done was they took Plane A offset it 2.178 and B offset 1.18 inches to just a cutout in the casting Then I have a callout from that cutout ( origin ) to the holes . So I got my plane A there and Datum B there but now I have to rotate a line or plane 40° up from plane A to find my holes. And that is were I got stuck. I could sure use am idea on how to do this.
    Thanks

    So in order to report the 2 holes correctly you need to rotate 40°? Just use the rotate function without choosinga feature upon which to rotate. DMIS will rotate at the origin about whatever axis' you choose.

      I have been using this software for about 6 months were would I find this rotate function at

        You have been creating alignments correct?

        It is in with the alignment function.

          in the 3-2-1 alignment window. Right where you select the feature to rotate to and about, there is a ROTATE OFFSET, that's where you put the angle. Select NO feature, but select the correct axis to rotate and the correct axis to rotate about, IE rotate X+ about Z+

            Matt clarified that pretty good. Thanks Matt.

              when I have used the rotate to, I only use a line to set up the alignment but it should rotate the plane without selecting it?

                Claude, I think it would be easier if you posted some code. When you reply select the Go Advanced button below>click the # icon to the upper right of the reply window> copy and paste your code [CODE]here[/CODE]

                  When you use OFFSET ANGLE (I just looked) it is a degree value, it will rotate about the CURRENT XYZ zero point (so do it BEFORE you offset the origins) and it will rotate about the current alignment axis, so it needs to be done AFTER you level to the plane, rotate to the line, and set the XYZ origin points, THEN you would do the (ROTATE) OFFSET ANGLE. If you need to rotate the 'plane', as it were, you would need to select ROTATE TO as Z+ (if you leveled to Z+), then, if it needs to rotate about the X+ axis, use that or the Y+ axis, then use that (minus as well) for the ABOUT. It will then rotate by the exact degree value you entered in the little box.
