  • plane using loop points

    I use 2 loops to measure grid of points(variable number of points and variable
    offsets). I write points to the file.
    But I would like to construct a plane in PC-DMIS using all those points and dimension it's flatness.
    Is it possible? If yes, how to do this?

    Thanks for all ideas!

    Construct/plane highlight or check each point you want to use.
    Dimension/Flatness of above constructed feature.
    When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

      I am trying to construct one whole plane from 4 loops (90 deg.) and none of the looped planes show up in my contruction options menu. Ver. 3.207 beta.

      Any help?

      Thanks

        Like I posted in another thread of yours you could try feature arrays. If that does not work this definately will. In your loop write the pertinent data to a text file, after the loop read it in and construct from the variables you read it in to (I just thought about that and it will work for your other issue you posted about).

          I understand your issue. The features created in the loop are not showing in the point selection window when you use the construct plane function. The features do exist, construct a plane from features you can select. Then in the edit window place your cursor at the name of the just constructed plane and tab through to the selected features area, when the first one is highlighted type the name of the one you want and tab to the second and change it and so on till you've got what you want for the correct construction. The features from the loop will be something like this plane1[1]
          from the first time through the loop and plane1[2] from the second time through. Try it, it'll work.

            Coolness, another solution. I was thinking about you and this issue when I started looking into feature arrays recently. I still don't know if feature array is a workable solution to this. As a matter of fact I'd like anyone who has used feature arrays to tell me about thier experience with them. I especially like your solution though Terry. Thanks man.

              use "Pattern" instead of a "Loop"

                That's the way I'd go about it. Paste with Pattern is a lot less PAINLESS...
