Hi,

I have upgraded to NX 10 from NX7.5.

Can anyone tell me how to enable 2D Material Removal option in Tool Path Visualization.

 

Thanks

I think the is a SFB in the solution center that covers this, so search for "sfb 2d material removal" in the solution center.

Hello I think, this option is available only for turning?... Are you sure, that you want switch on this option ... in your attached file it seem  it is not turning but milling...

I would say youre looking for 2D dynamic page ... it is in Customer Defaults -> Manufacturing -> Simulation&Visualization -> General tab -> Show 2D Dynamic Page option

The 2D Dynamic tab can be turned on in customer defaults, but it is provided for legacy only.

 

3D Dynamic shows multiple colors and allows pan/zoom/rotate while it's running, and is the go forward approach.  

If you find you still need 2D Dynamic, please let me know why you prefer it.

2d is still needed due to 3d not giving a good enough quality picture of machining results. \

Hi.

2D Dynamic shows rapid cutting in RED,



Thanks

Unless it has been reinstated since they switched it off in NX8.5

It no longer displays rapid collisions in red.

I had an IR that was changed to an ER.

 

Details below.

 

As 2D is now deprecated I don't expect much to happen.

That being said 3D verify is much better in 9.0.3 and 10.0.1 than previous versions

 

Subject: RE: IR 2245580 Request for Information (Desc: NX9 - Verify replay doesn't show gouges as in NX4)

As per development team this is working as designed in NX8.5 & NX9 and its documented (NX Documentation -> Release Notes -> NX 9 Caveats and Product Notes -> Manufacturing -> General Caveats) as mentioned below.

================================================

2D Dynamic collision display when verifying a tool path
--------------------------------------------------------
In previous releases, rapid tool motions through the Part, Blank or IPW were displayed in the red gouge color as material removed. In the current release, the material removal from these tool motions is not displayed, so you will not see these 
collisions. To check for collisions, do one of the following:

- Click List after the simulation stops.

- Click Collision Settings. In the Collision Settings dialog box, select the Pause on Collision check box to stop the visualization when a collision occurs. This option does not work if you step through the operation.

================================================

As this is working as designed all GTAC can now do is to submit Enhancement request to implement this in future release.

Hi Mark

 

We have just upgraded to Nx11.0.2 and I was hoping to longer need to use the 2D Dynamic. I see that there are a lot of improvements to the 3D Dynamic. But I am still using the 2D Dynamic beacuse:

 

It animates complex parts quicker

It animates graphically more smoothly

On screen it has a far higher resoultion

 

Now I see that I can 'Enhace IPW Resolution" in Nx 11 but this function only works at the conclusion of the visualisation. With 2D I have the higher resolution during the visualisation so I can see small problems that I can not detect using 3D
