Create solid millling tool assy for export to library

I'm trying to help one of our CAM guys out...he's been following this:

https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/nx/11.0.2/nx_help/#uid:xid813812

and the tool isn't displaying.  We can see it in the assy navigator during creation, but not when he adds that tool to his too path, to visualize the machining.   went thru it with him, and eveything seems to be in order from a modeling/assembly standpoint.

 

We are running NX and Teamcenter in a mixed mode configuration, so the NX model is in Teamcenter.  The above article mentions env variable UGII_CAM_LIBRARY_TOOL_GRAPHICS_PATH, and the default location is MACH\resource\library\tool\graphics on the OS.   I do see new files were created here, and I also see the NX model and assembly in Teamcenter.

 

Could there be something missing from an NX admin view, that I need to address?

 

Is there any better document on doing this, in regards to a mixed-mode NX/Tc environment?

 

Thanks, 

Dave

Assuming you are in "Verify"...

Have you set the "tool" option to "assembly"

Does the modelled tool show up correctly?

"Verify Tool Path"?  I'll check with the CAM guy again, thanks.

Right-click on operation -> toolpath -> verify

(or if editing an op, 3rd icon in the "Actions" block)

 

I believe machine sim. also has options about how the tool should be displayed.

But Verify is enough to make sure the tools displays "correctly"
