Customize "Location" group when creating new operation

Pioneer

Hi All,

I am creating few operations which all fall under same Program, Tool, Geomtery and Method group.

 

When I create a new operation, the value for above mentioned items are set based on previous selection or at random.

 

I would like to set these values based on my requirement.

Eg:

for Operation: Rough_Turn_OD, I would like to set up the following

Program : NC_PROGRAM

Tool: NONE

Geometry: MCS_SPINDLE

METHOD:TURN_ROUGH

 

Is there any tcl file or setting that allows me to change the values of "Location" group?

 

Thanks,

Faisal Ahmed

Re: Customize "Location" group when creating new operation

There is no way to set a "default" interctively. It will retain the previous options if you create several operations.

If you always want the same 4 parents for an operation, you can do this with templates. In the template part (or your copy) set the parents as you want, and on the template operation turn on the template setting to create if parent is created. When you use this operation as a template, the system will assign or create the parents as needed to match the templae part.
