Automated ProE analysis output

Fishing for ideas:



I would like to be able to output the following information to a text file with a macro.



a) The distant measured in cartesian coordinates (XYZ)



and



b) the rotational angle



between two coordinate systems.



Assuming the two CSYS's exist, I think I would create an analysis feature. Is there one that measures a and b?



Once I have an analysis feature, how would I automatically move the output to a text file?



Would this be the best way to accomplish this?

create the 2 csys

do analysis>measure>transform

hit he info button then save the file as a text file. this gets the data in the format Ax+b, the first 3x3 numbers are the matrix of rotations(A) and the last column is the translation vector b.

Now you can offset a new coordinate system using the same transformation matix

Create a csys from file then type in the name of the file you saved but just the name without extension.
