Sorry if this has been covered before but how do I automatically load cutting tools and fixtures when retreiving a machine in NX CAM?

 

Thank you for your time.

I see two possibilities:

 

- use "File/New" template, so when you start CAM project, machine is already loaded with everything you want (fixtures, tools etc)

or

 

- maintain separate libraries of machines, tools and fixtures. In this case user will load machine manually, then load "tool magazine", and load fixtures.

 

You can create tool magazine as carrier, and then use it as a template:

For a fixtures library you can use for example CAM Reuse Library, as described here:
