I have a 4-axis post and now I want to make a copy of it and convert it into 3-axis by blocking the B-axis. The b-axis don't show up anywhere in the program except at the first tool. Anyone out there can show me how to get rid of the B-axis at the first toll.
In Post Builder on the Program & Tool Path page is the Program tab. This lists the output in a sequence of events. Look at the start of path or initial move and see if there is a block with the B axis output. If that fails activate the Review tool - Output Settings - Other Options. Save the post and Select a small program to post. The review tool will display and you can use this to analyze where the specific code is being generated from. I recommend a smal file because it takes much longer for the review tool to display with a large tool path.
Thank you very much for your reply. Unfortunately, I don't have and know post builder. I just deal directly with the post. I know where to block the B-axis in the program but for the first tool. I dont know where that line should be.
Post Builder is included in all of our CAM packages.
Have you looked at the start menu under All Programs --> Siemens NXn.n --> Manufacturing?
