    Default Zeiss Calypso V6 how to measure a bolt circle

    We're in the process of self teaching ourselves this software.
    How in the heck do you measure a simple bolt circle?
    Is it under Pattern? If so, which one?
    We can do 95% of thh basic stuff on this machine,but this one is a curveball to us.

    Is there a rotate option?

    I don't know, really. There is a pattern offset feature.
    For a world class company, I'm REALLY unimpressed with their user interface. It's downright garbage! Something out of the early 90's. And not user friendly at all.

    I thought it was first under Cartesian>Circle>Multiple. But it's been a while since.

    I'm hoping this was resolved for you years ago but I have an answer. Better late than never. :-) Maybe it will help the next guy. I found it under Features/circle which will create a circle feature. Double-click on that feature to open it. Then there is a dropdown for "nominal definition". Select "recall" in the dropdown. This will open a list of features. Just hold down ctrl and left-click to select the circles you want to use to build the bolt circle. Click ok and it should build the bolt circle.
