     True Position

Free software for calculating True Position. For Windows and Mac True position is the deviation from the theoretical location of the hole or feature as shown on the drawing. A True Position of 0.000 would mean the hole is exactly where it is supposed to be. A True Position of 0.010 means the hole is 0.010 off from where it is supposed to be. If that 0.010 is more than the tolerance given on the drawing then the true position of the hole is out of tolerance.
True Position
Utilities
You need to know the basic dimensions of the drawing. 1. Put in the Tolerance according to the drawing. 2. Fill in the hole maximum and minimum dimensions from the drawing. This will calculate the mean basic dimension for you. 3. Fill in the Basic X and Y dimensions. 4. Fill in the Actual X and Actual Y dimensions you measure on the part. 5. If Drawing Tolerance allows Maximum Material Condition, check the checkbox and fill in the Actual Hole Diameter on the part. No need to press Enter. Calculation is automatically updated whenever anything is changed. When True Position calculated result is in RED, the value is out of tolerance. Maximum Material Condition - MMC If the tolerance callout has the M symbol then you are allowed extra tolerance. This extra tolerance comes from how much the actual size of the hole is larger than the minimum allowed size. Short-Cut Method For the short cut way, if you already know how much the hole is off in the X and Y direction, you can just put the deviation from basic in the Actual X and Actual Y boxes along with the Tolerance, and leave all the other boxes blank. MMC requires the min allowed diameter and the actual diameter of the hole. Inch or Millimeter input doesn't matter as long as you use the same everywhere. Plus and Minus Dimensions You can also enter dimensions in the plus and minus form to make it easier if your drawing has this kind of dimensioning. Using only the Max edit box, after the main number add plus and minus symbol or just plus or just minus and then the second number, into the Max dimension box. You can also have 0.2525+.01-.005 The min, max and mean are automatically calculated from this. You can see the calculated mean dimensions in parentheses. Printing The Print button will print a picture of the form as shown on the screen. Menu The Main Menu is found by pressing the system icon on the window. Save/Load - On System Menu there are choices to save or load the current data to a file. Files have the .tpfile extension. Stay On Top - You can make the Program stay on top of all other windows by going to the system menu and choosing “Stay On Top”.  truepos.exe ver. 1.0.0.6 (4mb) For Windows XP to 10 These files are Digitally Signed by i-Logic Software  truepos.zip ver. 1.0.6 (3mb)   truepos.zip ver. 1.0.6 (4mb)    True Position
