Tech Tip: Dynamic Datum Reference Frames

When measuring any part, feature and profile measurements must be taken using the same reference coordinate frame so that results are consistent and repeatable. This is generally achieved through the specification and use of datums included in the GD&T callouts on a CAD model. Verisurf's powerful Dynamic Datum Reference Frame tool takes this concept a step further and makes it easy to globally adjust feature measurements to a new DRF without having to completely remeasure the part. Within the Verisurf Report Manager, operators can use existing feature data to create new datum reference frame alignments dynamically. Once the new DRF has been defined, all...
