Output from a Lookup is Custom
« on: February 01, 2008, 02:24:52 PM »
I am getting a return of "Custom" instead of "B"when the height reads 3''.   It works fine when the height is 2'-10" and it spits back HAB.

Please see the image.

I + XI = X is true ...  ... if you change your perspective.

Found the answer over on AUGI in a thread titled  What does 'Custom' mean in the Lookup tables?
A very valuable reminder

Ok, I've seen this a couple times now. Its pretty common. There is two parts to your Custom problem. The first is the accuracy. In some spots you call your lookup table to look for a parameter size that is 2 units long and 2.5 units long. The problem is your actual red line drawn in the block is like 1.984632 and 2.438585 in size. So when you change parameters it cant recognize the 2.000000000 exact size. So the way I debug the custom problem is switch to the highest decimal precision. Then check all the line work and parameter size lengths. Make sure everything is exactly precise to the lookup table.

So this is similar to what I was talking about before. Gotta make sure your sizes listed ion the lookup table match exactly with what has been drawn.

Thanks to Mark Douglas for his insight.

Make these last change to my blocks and I am on my way.  :mrgreen:
