I have costomized some Feeds and Speeds in my machine data library and I would like to connect
the definitions of the feeds and speeds from my machining_knowledge, with the costomized ones in my machine data library.
Right know the feeds and speeds are defined in the MKE as constants, which are builded from the used
machine and the part-material.
Hope for Help - Thank you

There are two alternative approaches to specifying feeds & speeds in combination with the use of the MKE:
1. You specify the feeds & speeds in the MKE rules (e.g. using machine/material specific constants as you have done. In this approach, you are by-passing the use of the machining data library.
2. You don't specify any feeds & speeds in the MKE rules. In this approach, your operations will initially inherit their feeds and speeds from the templates.
You can combine the second approach with the use of the Manufacturing Preference -> Operation -> Machining Data -> Automatically Set in Operation. When this option is activated, NX CAM will automatically execute the "Set Machining Data" command in each of the operations that were generated using the Create Feature Process command.
There is no possiblity (and from our point of view also no need) to directly link the feeds and speeds in the MKE rules with the machining data library.

Best is to enable the customer default for setting the machining data automatically, so you don't have to always activate it in the preferences for each user.
