if by mistake i define clearance lower then r point in dril i have crash.
can siemens add to drill operations condition that if clearance lower then r point the system will refuse and alarm will show and ask me to fix clearance height?
1 photo of toolpath with arrow is the dangerous in action.
Solved! Go to Solution.
That is an older PTP drilling operation type.
You might want to look at this:
The chances of any updates to change the PTP code are slim at best.
It would be possible to add a check in the post for this condition.
Or run the visualization and check for gouges and collisions
I would add that in some cases eg Back Boring the retract point can be below the drill point etc
As said before, point-to-point operations are on critical maintenance.
A new user should start with hole making, and never look at the old drilling.
Out of the box, the clearance should be set in the MCS to a safe distance above the part. This is then used by all the operations under it in the geometry view.
