Converting Y B C Coordinate System

Hi,

I've been given Y,B,C coordinates to draw up various tube models; is there anything within Pro/E or any convertor that can model these tubes?

Normally I model using X, Y, Z cartesian coordinate system which is straight forward.

Any help would be appricated.

Thanks

Re: Converting Y B C Coordinate System

Hello Andy

Do you can **rename** your datum coordinate system with **ModelCheck**.

In the ModelCheck it is possible set configuration options** DATUM_RENAME** to "y". (*If this check is enabled and a specified datum is found in the model, ModelCHECK renames it. Datums to be renamed are specified using the config tags PRT_DATUM_RENAME and ASM_DATUM_RENAME.*)

In the start file set:

**PRT_DATUM_RENAME YBC XYZ**

*Note: YBC is old name for coordinate system, XYZ is new name for coordinate system*

Vladimir

Re: Converting Y B C Coordinate System

Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for the information, but I many have lead you up the wrong path!

X, Y, Z are cartesian co-ordinate points

Y, B, C are length between bends, rotation and angle of bends also known as LRA.

It maybe only CNC bending information, I'm not too sure.

Kind regards

Andy

Re: Converting Y B C Coordinate System

Hello Andy

Uppps,I had misunderstood your problem.

With CNC informations I do not have a experience , but at least you know the possibility of renaming of datum features.

Have a nice day.

Vladimir

Re: Converting Y B C Coordinate System

Andy,

If you have the Pro/Piping extension that will give you the *reverse* capability, that is "YBC" output for NC bending from a completed pipe model; I don't think you can go the other way however. (I may be wrong, not having used Pro/Piping to any great extent.) Have you tried the Pipe feature? (Insert/Advanced/Pipe) This may give you what you need. Otherwise, you should be able to construct what you need using a series of Coordinate Systems and Datum Curves, depending on the complexity of your models. Good luck!

Re: Converting Y B C Coordinate System

Vladimir,

Not a problem, thanks for you help.

David,

I've had a quick look at Pro/Pipe and I can't seem to find the Y,B,C input. I think you are right it's only an output and not reversible. The only options with in Pro/Pipe are spherical, cylindrical and Cartesian inputs.

Thanks for you help.

Andy
