  • Half Angle

    How are you guys reporting the half angle of a cone.

  • #2
    Create a generic cone and when calculating the angle use the measured cone's angle and divide it by two. For example, CON1.A/2

      I hadn't even thought of that.

      Thanks

      In the very early versions of PC DMIS there was a option for half angle if I remember correctly. I wounder what happened to it.

        Here is an example of what I do. I am guessing you figured it out already.

        Code:
        ASSIGN/V2 = ABS(180-F1.A.MEAS)/2
        F2         =GENERIC/NONE,DEPENDENT,RECT,OUT,$
                    NOM/XYZ,0,0,0,$
                    MEAS/XYZ,0,0,0,$
                    NOM/IJK,0,0,1,$
                    MEAS/IJK,0,0,1,$
                    RADIUS/0,0,$
                    ANGLE/20,V2,$
                    DISTANCE/0,0
        DIM D10= LOCATION OF PLANE F2  UNITS=IN ,$
        GRAPH=OFF  TEXT=OFF  MULT=1.00  OUTPUT=BOTH
        AX  NOMINAL    +TOL     -TOL     MEAS    OUTTOL 
        A   20.0000   0.5000   0.5000  20.1082   0.0000 -#-
        END OF DIMENSION D10
        When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

          I just go ahead and dimension the angle of the cone. They should be smart of enough to divide by 2 themselves
          I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

              That is one thing to say, but they can respond with, "you should be smart enough to do your job and report dimensions as required by the print."
