CIRCLE output in CLS

The default output of a full circular motion in STANDARD_CLSF is 3 CIRCLE records of each 120 degree arcspan

Is this a way to change this?

Re: CIRCLE output in CLS

NX internally calculates circles in 120° segments, so you would need to add some logic to the CLSF processor to change this.

On the other hand, why would you like to change this?

In this case, on a Heidenhain controller, you would never get a "invalid circle end point" error, with look ahead there would never be any circle pieces skipped, etc.

You would get the most accurate circular records possible if you just use what the system calculates internally.

Re: CIRCLE output in CLS

It's not somethig I want to change, I was just wondering IF it could be infleunced.

In our postprocessors (Icam) we can set limits to the max arc-span of a circle, witch we don't use because of the 120 degree limit NX uses to output circles.
