Hexagon Measurement Systems
No matter what Hexagon measurement equipment or software you use, we want to hear your ideas and suggestions on how we can improve.
Thanks for your assistance in helping us shape the future.
It would be nice to have the ability to export a probe build into an IGES or STEP format so that I could load it into the CAD system. We have a need to create a drawing of the probe for documentation purposes and there is not an easy way to do this currently. Not everyone who wants this information has PC-DMIS where they can look at the probe build.
I would like to be able to output dimension min/max values to stats instead of the average. I don't know how it would work but it seems as though it would create two outputs for a single dimension and then maybe it would tag a min and max to the dimension labels.
I would like a edit command/dialogue to move feature(s) XYZ values. Please create a dialogue with the option to select features from list or graphics window, input values to shift X, Y, Z, and rotation about an axis or feature. I want something that will allow me to move any feature nominal a given distance or rotate it a given angle. Take for example the paste with pattern function but it would function as an editing tool instead.
Get the angle between two features.
Bit like the distance command.
- Select two features and it gives the angle between them (in the current workplane) with the origin as the centre point.
-Select three features and it gives the angle between the first two using the third as the centre point.
I see a lot of chains of angular dimensions,I spend a lot of time constructing lines from the centre to the bolt holes and evaluating the angle between the lines, makes the graphics cluttered as well.
It would be nice to be able to report both X distance and Y distance in one pass thru the distance dialog. The current method of only being able to report one axis at a time is a waste of time in both programming and reading a report not to mention a waste of ink and paper.
If I evaluate the position of a plane in XactMeasure, it should evaluate it from the worst point of the plane and not the center of the plane.
At the moment I always have to search for min/max point relative to the datum and evaluate the bigger deviation of the two.
