if you mean output for center of Ball Nose, it can be done by customizing you postprocessor.

There is PB Command which you can import to you postprocessor

 

    #=============================================================
    proc PB_CMD_center_of_ball_output { } {
    #=============================================================
    #
    #  This command will output center of ball in every linear,
    #  circular and rapid move block.
    #
    #  This function is only valid for the Fixed and Variable Axis
    #  Surfacing Contouring modules in NX2 or newer.
    #
    #  You will also need to toggle on the Output Contact Data option
    #  on the Machine Control or Non-Cutting Moves (More tab) dialog.
    #
    #
    #  ==> Import this command to the post and call it in the
    #      PB_CMD_before_motion command.

 

But there is also 3D cutter compensation (inside NX). I'm not sure which option you are referring to.

I am using HeidenHain Post processor  which perfectally generating codes for TCPM or M128.

which is used for Axis Synchronisation and 3D cutter compensation.

I mean there is not any issue in my post processor.

I just want to know where the option" 3D cutter Compensation" is inside NX cam.

 

Thanks for reply

About postprocessor I didn't mean that it needs to be fixed. I mean that there is an option to add a FEATURE, which allows you to output code for center of the ball.

 

And 3D cutter compensation can be found Non Cutting Moves / More tab / Output Contact Data

This two options are not related to each other.
