# 3+2 without 5 axis license

Valued Contributor

As the title suggests I have the 3axis milling license but I was wondering if I could do basic 3+2 axis machining with this license. Currently I don't need to do any simultaneous 5 axis operations so I don't need that functionality but it seems like I could do basic 3+2 axis work with my current license. Could anybody verify this for me?

Thanks.

Hi

You are correct. For NX licensing 3+2 milling operations are the same as 3 axis.

you can change "tool axis" option in every 3 axis operation.

That's exactly what I thought. Might be time for a new purchase! Thanks again Marek.

By the way, the reference set things we discussed in our email worked perfectly once I understood how to use it.

Thanks again!
