 Calculating true position with angular basic Post Reply Forum
 Posted by: psnider ® 09/04/2003, 18:03:58 Author Profile Mail author Edit I know how to calculate a true position based on x and y deviation from basic cartesian. What is the formula for calculating true position when you have a bolt circle basic and an angular basic?

If the analysis is via CMM you should still get delta-x and delta-y. You might also get a direct radial measurement. If you are gaging, the virtual condition pins at true position won't care how the part was initially dimensioned. Dave S.
