Control X is capable of collecting 2D and 3D dimensional information, GD&T information, Statistical Information (RMS Value, Standard Deviations, etc.). More often than not, users are interested in displaying the data in a report, either to be used internally or to be presented to their customers. But did you know that Control X can also make this information available for downstream applications as well?
Consider the “3D Dimensions” and the “3D Overall Dimensions” nodes below. The 3D Dimensions GD&T node contains three dimensions.
And the 3D Overall Dimensions GD&T node contains four dimensions.
With the 3D GD&T Node selected below, we can preview the data in the form of a spreadsheet, at the bottom of the graphics window. Notice pass/warning/fail information is also clearly displayed, utilizing colors.
With a quick Export to CSV, the data is readily available in a standard, fully-functional Excel CSV file.
We can then retrieve the CSV file and all dimensional and testing data is available for any downstream applications.
