Detect Operation Method Path Setting in Post Builder

Valued Contributor

Is there an easy way (other that a UDE) to detect the Method Path Setting (METHOD or MILL_FINISH or MILL_ROUGH or MILL_SEMI_FINISH or NONE) in Post Builder?

 

I would like to set CYCL DEF 32.2 HSC-MODE (0 if MILL_FINISH is selected  or 1 if MILL_ROUGH is selected) based on the Method Path Setting in the operation.

 

Maybe another undocumented variable like the $mom_inside_outside_tolerances() array which I use to calculate the CYCL DEF 32.1 T value ($mom_inside_outside_tolerances(0)+$mom_inside_outside_tolerances(1))*1.5?

 

If the $mom_inside_outside_tolerances() array is documented, I couldn't find it.

 

Thank you for your help.

The Excel sheet for the Excel-based shop documentation has a more or less recent list of variables included.

You can use the review tool to check what variables are available containing the method information.

I would not go for the name of the method group, since it is easy to change. I would go for the cut method selected, which also drives the machining data.

Will hold the library reference of the cut method selected in the method group parent of the operation.

This is a unique ID and will avoid problems if used for setting the mode.
