Add a Custom Cycle in FBM

Valued Contributor

Hello there,

 

I am trying to add a custom cycle in FBM.

 

I have created a user defined cycle called "Drill,ThreadMilling" under hole_making.TAPPING.

I want to add this cycle as an Add-on in a hole_making.TAPPING operation in MKE.

I cannot find the user-defined cycle.

 

Thanks,

Kai

There's 2 things to check:

1. the key USER_DEFINED_EVENTS in your cam configuration .dat points to a .cdl file which contains the definition of your custom UDE.
2. You must -one time only- Open and Update your machining knowledge source file in the Machining Knowledge Editor. You must select the cam config mentioned in 1.

Now you should have the UDE available as an Add-on to your machining rule.

Hi Mark,

 

No, it is not the same issue.

Thanks, Reinier.

 

I have checked the two things. I can find user-defined-event in Add-on, but cannot find user-defined-cycle.

 

Thanks,

Kai

Indeed I wrote about UDE, but the same applies to user defined cycle.

Can you send me the CDL file in a pm ?
