I'm testing contour profile operation , I do not know and do not master, but I find the time very long for generate , my company needs this type of operation to increase its productivity.
I tested on 2 different computers with Nx11 (Nx126.96.36.199) :
Time around: 1 min 40 s
I would appreciate , If someone for me, can test this operation and tell me the time and what you think
Here is my computer's information :
Windows 10 64 Nvidia Quadro M4000 Core : 6 Ram : 32
Please find Attached the file :
I had a look at your part and I had the same calculation time (1:40). For me this seems to be okay. You are using Swarf Base UV as tool axis, which will give you a descent toolpath (which it is).
If you increase your Outtol to 0.05, you will have a calculation time of 54 seconds. So it's just a matter on how fine resolution you need the toolpath (which might also be dependent to which machine controll you are using.
So if you have the possibility to increase your tolerance, then this could save you toolpath calculation time.
Thank you both & for taking the time...
@AlexanderFreund , I'm not a fan to increase the outtol tolerance but for this operation I think I will be forced to
@Dstryr , the difference I see, it's your processor , 3.6 for me to 4.2 for you
I'm wondering how good the multi core support is in NX11.0.2?
I'm building 2 new PC this week with this new i9. I will test next week and report back for you
Hahah. I just dont know how much it will help right now. Siemens hasn't released exactly what is multi core supported as far as I can tell?
Multi-core support is slowly being added by most of the larger CAD and software companies from my sxperience. The problem is what we wanted in a few years is taking decades.
There are some applications that have multi-core, but not enough.
Until the customer base screems about it, I don't see a major change and we will be limited by this performance improvement brick wall.
