CSE simulations, two questions.

Hello!

NX9.0.2

 

For very simple  3-axis CNC machine I try to simulate G-code file.

Question #1 - why BallMill tool (D20, R10 mm) looks like needle or pin? Can I change tolerance for tool representation?  

 

Question #2 - For circular motion I see warning message "Programmed radius too small" - but radius in programm ~0.4 mm, not so small.

How I can change miminum possible radius?

What does the tool definition look like in NX?

Hello, Mark!

Thank you for reply.

I use ordinary tool - see pic1:

I dont understand - but now (just today, when I preparing images to answer you!) - I see this tool in CSE like normal tool.....

I dont know why!

 

Re: CSE simulations, two questions.

FYI in the future, if you want a ball tool, use ball_mill instead of a 5 parameter end mill.

There are specific features intended for ball mills only, that may not be available if you define it as a different tool type.

The tool display (faceting) are related to the "Chordal Tolerance" from the customer default (Manufacturing->Simulaiton&Verification IPW TAB). Try to change that to improve the tool faceting display.
