  • NOM file help


    I need to make a nom file from solid.I imported IGS file to PC-DMIS and don't know how to get the xyzijk ( nom file ) .
    As far I know This file Is use to make a airfoil scaning program and later for evaluation.

    Once you have created all the check points, simply export the data. WAHT you can export will depend on the version you have. Older versions will allow the XYZIJK export, newer ones do not. For the newer versions, you can export either GENERIC or DES format, either one will get you the data, but not necessarily exactly matching the XYZIJK format, but it WILL be XYZIJK.

      What is your goal here? If you are after a NOM XYZIJK file, these don't usually come from PC-DMIS. They are produced by a CAD system and PC-DMIS imports them to measure from.

      That is not to say that PC-DMIS can't do it. If you are in some sort of reverse engineering task here, you can measure lots of points and then export this to a GENERIC file (for example, one of many options) and then strip that down to the XYZIJK data.

      To generate all those points on the part, you can program lots of individualy points, or a collection of scans, or a mix of both.

      So, now that we have a discussion going, can you please elaborate on what it is that you are trying to do?

          If I understand you correctly, you want to import a XYZ file that has been created in CAD. If this is true, simply select (File) then
          (Import) then (XYZ). Then browse to the directory where the file resides.
