Custom Report, Analysis view - add possibility to pick scale and orientation from a CAD-object on the page

anders isaksson 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 0

When displaying transparent Analysis views over a CAD-object in custom reports, it is very time consuming to get the scale and orientation right. As these properties must exist on the CAD-object, it would be very good if the Analysis view could (be told to) pick up those values. I would still need to translate the image to the right place, but that's the easy part.


It would also be nice to have the Scale of the CAD-object as a visible (modifiable) property, to make it easier to get all CAD-object in the right size.

Report assigned variables directly

Ken Renninger 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 0

It would be nice to have a statement like this that would not stop the program.

Currently a generic feature has to be created to output this information.

Option to have labels of non-visible features not visible

Kingsld1 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 0

Sometimes the labels get in the way when you are rotating the cad model around. It would be nice if the labels turned off if the measured feature was not visible. Know you can turn them on and off but sometimes it's a pain to turn off all the labels of features that are on the other side of the part.

Offer an option in the installer for Language Pack installation

Alex 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 0

It often happens, that the user forgets or omits to install the Language Pack. The local AE’s told me that it will be helpful if during the installation (probably last step) the installer requests to indicate the location of the Language Pack (you should allow to skip, but at least the user is warned that the language pack has not been installed).

Feature Point Display Symbol size default to tip size.

Kingsld1 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 0

Have the feature point symbol default to the current tip size. Handy if you are working in tight spaces. Probably should retain the ability to make it whatever you want; just add a current tip size check box. I know you can change it in CAD and Graphics setup/ Symbols but I'm lazy...... :)

Create folder if not exist

Waldemar 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 2

It would be great to add insert folder. The solution with scripting is much too difficult for users.

Parameter Editor Dialog Window

davehocum 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 4

Hexagon needs to create a Dialog window that a programmer can change Parameters in the Edit window. With this dialog window a programmer would be able to edit parameters for individual features, selected features or all feature parameters.

Example how a programmer can Highlight Labels in the Graphics window with the Edit Feature Appearance window.

There was also a Global Update program that would change the Parameters of Features and Dimensions. There is an example VB program that is installed with PC-DMIS the Data Field Edit that can edit more than the parameters.

Changing the same parameter on alot of features

Is this a hardware issue or software connection issue?

Change marker size

dan brokstad 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 1

Ability to change the marker size to bigger when you click on the point cloud (Point Cloud Alignment). Often you click straight through the cloud then you select points.

See this two points, they are clicked very close and one is going thru the top surface on my cloud.
Of course I know the alt- buttom ;-)
