  • Offset plane..............

    OK my brain is shutting down for the W/E.
    How do I construct a plane parallel to another plane
    at a given distance from the latter?
    I need to get at least one thing done this week................

    Tks

    You can construct offset points & then construst plane......
    sigpic.....Its called golf because all the other 4 letter words were taken

      Never tried that, but it worked GREAT!!!

      Thanks

        For info you can also create a generic plane and do the following

        Enter the X,Y,Z,I,J,K values identical to the plane you are offsetting from and simply add the amount of offset in the required axis

        F1 =GENERIC/PLANE,DEPENDENT,RECT,$
        NOM/XYZ,0,0,0,$
        MEAS/XYZ,0,0,0,$
        NOM/IJK,0,0,1,$
        MEAS/IJK,0,0,1

        F2 =GENERIC/PLANE,DEPENDENT,RECT,$
        NOM/XYZ,F1.X,F1.Y,F1.Z+25,$
        MEAS/XYZ,F1.X,F1.Y,F1.Z+25,$
        NOM/IJK,F1.I,F1.J,F1.K,$
        MEAS/IJK,F1.I,F1.J,F1.K

          I used to do it by offsetting points in other softwares but the easiest way for me to do it is by constructing an offset plane in the feature constructions.

            We were just wodering about this the other day! Using MeasureMax 6.2? we could just use the mv command. To move the feature 1.0 in Z would be mv 0,0,1. I hadn't considered using the variable stored in the x,y,z of the measured or constructed plane. I kept thinking about offsetting the plane in the constructed plane window - Very

            There are a lot more options using the demon! I keep forgetting to remember to try to think of them.

            Thanks - - -

              Level to the plane in question, create an offset point from this plane at the required distance, create a parallel plane from the plane through the offset point.
