Hi, we want to try the new option in NX12.0.2 with tangent barrel cutter. we have a problem with applying a tool as configured in the picture. So are there limitations in the settings? We want to use a GARANT Parabolic Perfomance cutter, type 207532. Thanks for your reply. Frank
It appears the length is too short for the neck definition; 93.5+ mm minimum? I think the limitation is a combination of neck definition and the barrel radius not going above the tool diameter and it doesn't like the neck disappearing. Tangent tools are a new tool type and I have read Siemens wants to add more functionality to it so I recommend loggin an IR with GTAC but it may have to be an ER if they say it is working as designed. It is more work but you could try a standard barrel tool as a work around.
I have tried another option. I typed 999.9999 and it worked. So in this case, Siemens has limited the number on 3 digits. But maybe we will get an official anouncement from Siemens. Best regards! Frank
