SUMMARY: Point file .pts import truncating accuracy

SUMMARY: Point file .pts import truncating accuracy

Sorry, should have said Creo 2.

I received this answer off-list:


"Not sure what release your using: If it's Creo 2.0 try this config option: default_dec_places

Setting Range is (0 - 13)"



Sure enough, changing this from 3 to 6 caused .pts values to be imported at their full accuracy of (wait for it) 8 or 9 decimal places (depending on total number of digits - actually 10 sig fig). Go figure....



I also had this reply on Planet PTC:



"Check that in your config.pro the following setting is set:

default_dim_num_digits yes

On Creo 2.0 M100, I tested that when I changed it to read:

default_dim_num_digits no

the system then started truncating the .pts imported dimensions to 3 decimal places (the value of default_dec_places setting)"

I haven't tested this but assuming it works, it sounds more useful than just increasing dp everywhere (which I'm sure we didn't do when this worked properly some years ago).

Thanks all!
