Measure coordinates

I want to know the X/Y/Z coordinates of a point on a part in an assembly.  How can I get this?

Under the Inspect tab, there is tool called "Inquire Element".   Change your options to "keypoints" and select the point of interest.  You'll see a readout of its xyz points relative to the assembly origin.  If you're using ST7, you can select the "Measure" tool and again you'll get a readout of xyz values.  Both options do the same thing; display of results just slightly different.

 

Hope this helps.

I have a related question. How do I create a relative YBC report for tube bending data?

If you have used ExpressRoute to create the tubes,  use the Bend Table in the Express Route environment to output this info.
