  • Creating a plane with 3 measurement features

    Sorry for my question. I have measured three spheres.
    Now i need to know, how can i create a plane with this three spheres

    If the plane is supposed to pass through the centres of the three spheres you can just use COLPTS to collect the centre points into a plane (see below)

    Code:
    COLPTS           (NAM=PLANE, CSY=CSY(1), ELE=(SPH(1),SPH(2),SPH(3)), TYP=PLA, EVA=N)

    However, if the spheres are offset then you will need to use the OFSPLANE command (see below)

    Code:
    OFSPLANE         (NAM=OFFSET_PLANE, PTS=(SPH(1),SPH(2),SPH(3)), OFS=(10,20,30), MOD=NOE)
    You enter the three offset values from the resulting plane to each corresponding sphere into the three boxes in the command dialogue (argument OFS).
