• Method “3D Mode” :


By default it is the total reference mark of the model 3D which is used.

To select a new origin, we can select either a point, a summit, a circle or an arc. The axes of this new reference mark correspond to the total reference mark of the model. The point is selectable in all the views. If a circle or an arc of a circle is selected it is the point of center which is taken into account for this origin.

It is necessary  selection to be able to continue.

If we leave the selection by default on “Origin“the tool GetCoordinates2D request to select the view of drawing to be taken into account then to validate.


   The question does not arise if we select an entity belonging already at a view.


With the validation of the origin, a first line is created in the table with the comment possibly entered as well as the first annotation (function of the adjustment in the model of table). The XYZ coordinates displayed are 0,0,0.

It is possible to change reference mark after having begun the extraction  or after having validated the table by a simple edition of MacroFeature. All the coordinates will be recomputed. If an already pointed entity is selected, the new reference mark “1” replaces the old reference mark. The old reference mark disappears as well as the line in the table. The numbering of the following reference marks is not recomputed.


  • Method “project Mode” :


    • Reference mark XY is always parallel to the sheet (X horizontal and Y vertical).
    • The origin by default is the projection of the origin of the model 3D in the selected view.
    • It is obligatorily necessary to select the origin and to validate the selection to be able to continue.
    • It is possible to select a new origin, we can select a point, a summit, a circle or an arc (it is the center which is taken into account).
    • When the user selects the origin in a view, it is the view of selection of the point which is automatically taken into account.
    • When the user changes the origin, it cannot select one in another view of them.
    • An outline of reference mark XY (sketch block) is constantly displayed in the selected view.


 


This sketch block” Origine.sldblk“is saved in the folder:

C:\Users\Nom _Utilisator \ AppData \ Local \ Axemble \ myCADtools 2015 \ GetCoordinates2D \ Blocks“.

 This block is automatically generated in the folder of installation above, it cannot be personalized.

    • With the validation of the origin, a first line is created in the table with the possibly entered comment, as well as the first annotation. Coordinates X, Y displayed are 0.0. If the model of table comprises a column to recover coordinates Z, this value will be equal to zero. It is possible to change reference mark after having begun the extraction  or after having validated the table by a simple edition of MacroFeature. All the coordinates will be recomputed. If an already located entity is selected, the new reference mark “1” replaces the old reference mark. The old reference mark disappears as well as the line in the table. The numbering of the following reference marks is not recomputed. The sketch block representing the reference mark is moved on the new selected entity.


The format of the annotations is defined in the options of the document SOLIDWORKS, however in this zone it is possible to specify:

    • Precision of the coordinates.

    • As well as the management of the posting of the zeros on the right.
