  • Dimensioning Torus

    I have a question about a measured torus hopefully someone can answer. This is also my first post here, so bear with me . I've searched a bit but I haven't seen anything that answers my question. Basically, I need to figure out the minor diameter of this torus. If I hover over that feature in the Edit toolbar, under the ACTL measurements I can see the measurement i’m looking for (the .25027). I’m trying to figure out a way to dimension it or manually extract it using a variable or anything related to that. Any suggestions?

    You should find the dimension here :

      You cannot report the minor diameter the way Jefman posted, unless I am missing something there. Unfortunately, the torus is not used much and I think this causes the developers to skip resolving this. This is what I could find:

      ASSIGN/V1=GETTEXT("Measured Minor Diameter",0,{TORUS1})

      Note: Torus1 was the name of my torus feature.

      you can then plug that value into a generic circle and dimension it.

      F1 =GENERIC/CIRCLE,DEPENDENT,CARTESIAN,OUT,$
      NOM/XYZ,<0,0,0>,$
      MEAS/XYZ,<0,0,0>,$
      NOM/IJK,<0,0,1>,$
      MEAS/IJK,<0,0,1>,$
      DIAMETER/1.5,V1

      Note: V1 is my measured value that I assigned to be the torus minor diameter, which I can plug into the measured size portion of the generic circle. After that, it is a simple location (D) dimension. My nominal minor diameter was 1.5mm.

        You're right, I didn't check it... !
        Don Ruggieri : could it be "enhanced" ?
