Can you guys help verify whether or not Ihave gone crazy?



In Creo2 I am trying to measuredistance from one vertex to another vertex of asame planar spline.In other words, the two ends of a squiggly curve.



The message I get back is "This measurement cannot be performed for the given set of references" Huh?



I can get a measurement from one end verex to the CSYS but not from end to end. My curve is located and dimensioned with Strong dims so it's located in space.



weird stuff this morning.

It works in WF5 (creo zero). Not in Creo 2.

But I suspect you have also gone crazy.

Dean,

Using the control key select the curve, then select the start or end vertex of the of the curve. In the projection field select the projection featureand also check the maximum distance.

RE: Brain Check request

Confirmed....David's suggestion is the correct one. Select measure tool, select curve, hold CNTL, select the vertex, select drop down in flyout, check maximum distance, select the second vertex.



Glad to see it still works. But...now 5-7 mouce clicks to get a straight line dimension was not what I expected to be required to get a simple measurement. Ah...the Creo!



Thanks David.

Very intuitive.

Not so weird as just something that should be fixed by PTC. Here is a work around. Place a circle at each end point of your spline. You can then measure circle to circle.

Another solution: The end of the curve is selectable two different ways. One (the first one selectable) is the end of the entire curve; the second (after a RMB) is the end of the segment. A measurement from curve end to curve end isn't possible, but if one is a segment end it works. The same thing is true even if the curve is all straight lines.

Why? I dunno, seems like a bug to me.

Now I know where PTC put some of the mouse clicks that they gladly tell they took away from other operations with Creo.

There must be a universal law of conservation of mouse clicks, like the law of conservation of mass:

The total clicks of the universe is constant within measurable limits of PTC products; whenever PTC products undergo a change, the total clicks of the upgrade is, within measurable limits, the same as the total clicks of all previous versions.

All very cliquish to me...
