Clocking angle of hose end fittings

Newbie

Clocking angle of hose end fittings

How do I determine which direction the clocking angle is being measured? In other words, is the angle that Pro/E spits out in the clockwise or counterclockwise direction relative to the first coordinate system?

Hey, this is a very good question my friend, anyone out there had this
challenge as well?

RE: Clocking angle of hose end fittings

Funny you should ask...

Answer is... It doesn't matter... As long as you pick a method and stick
to it.

We just switch from clockwise to counter clockwise and everything is
going haywire...

You should create a clocking symbol to include on each drawing. Make it
clear whether you are looking at the pins or the backshell when you
specify your direction. You may want to consult with your cable
assembler to find our what they are used to. Then you have a better
chance of getting good cables.

Good luck to you whatever you choose.
