PLATING CALCULATION

A way to calculate for allowing plating into your measurements I think would be a good idea. A way to enter plating variables and with the nominals from the imported CAD and selected Datums from the program an adjustment could be made to the tolerances, instead of manually adjusting your reported tolerances. A feature for PC-DMIS that takes each measured features vector and can move opposing vectors tolerance tighter and vectors in the same direction leave the same tolerance.

this would be an exceptionally handy tool. add the plating build into a popup at the beginning of the routine, and all the nominals and tolerances get adjusted automatically. would save hundreds of hours a year in manual routine adjustments  +1
