We are working on a Waldrich Colburg MTSK with 10 or more Head attachments in addition FACING HEAD. This is not a problem but I was just wondering why my C-Axis name is different in machine tool builder vs simulation axis dialog?
NX 11....... Version customer specified.
MACINE AXIS DIALOG FROM the builder
When simulating machine code file I see C_1c ? How would we check that the correct axis is loaded?
there are differnent ways to handle axis names dynamically BUT you need a well defined axis and pocket naming and numbering definition before you start writing the head/tool change programs. It makes the life more easier and you have the control. Otherwise NX will do this for you automatically.
To react more flexible I also suggest to work with the kinematic chain information. The cse function "getKinematicChainAxis" returns the axes in the current active chain.
Let me know if that was helpful or if you need further information about the OOTB implementations
