Add CW and CCW motion to vision circles

I would like the option to add CW and CCW motion to vision for circles, like the TTP has. Currently vision only moves counter-clockwise, but I would like the option to move clockwise. This would be handy when trying to create a set out of vision auto features and you want to show an analysis view. This would especially helpful in cases where 2D profile does not work, for example on edges where the Z values change.

Hi Barry,

I'm aware of this issue with analysis view as well. This suggestion would certainly resolve the issue, but it would put the extra work on the programmer. I've thought a better way to resolve would be to prevent connecting lines (tolerance / nominal) between discontinuous features or a point sorting algorythm in the analysis tools.

My question is; does this request go beyond the messy analysis? If we were to provide a solution in the analysis window that removed this need would it also close this idea, or is there another reason I'm missing above?

Hi Matt,

This would fall under the request to clean up a messy analysis view. If PC-DMIS could automate the analysis view that would be ideal. 

Perfect! Thanks for the quick reply.
