Create folder if not exist

Waldemar 7 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 4 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 8 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 4 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.

Link to the PC-DMIS forms

Changing the same parameter on alot of features

Change marker size

dan brokstad 8 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 4 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 ;-)

Representing size dimension in report window

Prasanna Sathyanarayanan 8 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by Rob Jensen 4 years ago 1

Most engineering carries specification for size mostly one time whatever the feature may be. There wont be specification separate for upper and lower size's . The fitted geometry would result in multiple size evaluations as specified by the size operator. It looks good if the size reporting carries max and min sizes in a bracket in the reporting window automatically as we are representing the nominal twice in the report window with positive and negative dimension. This could better be single nominal dimension with clear explanation of measured sizes represented as per the specification operator's.

Ability to define "paste with pattern" offsets by CAD selection

dave amstutz (djams) 8 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 4 years ago 0

Title pretty much says it all. I've got a CAD model right there in the CAD window. I'd like to be able to define pattern offsets by clicking on CAD geometry.

Having ability to choose the alignment in which values of assignments are given

jean-francois manlay (jefman) 8 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 4 years ago 0

For example, ASSIGN/V1=QUALTOOLDATA("XYZ", "MY_SPHERE") or ASSIGN/V2=PROBEDATA("vector") are given in STARTUP alignment whatever the actual alignment.

If I want to use them in a prog, I have to recall startup, then create a generic feature and recall the actual alignment...

It would be more simple in actual alignment !

More control over dimensions to export to QDAS

christianjunior1979 8 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 4 years ago 1

I would to specify a subset of a large number of dimensions, and send ONLY this specified subset to QDAS for Statistical Analysis
