Drilling - Changing Start Point

Valued Contributor

Hello,

 

I want to machine and teach this tilted Hole with hole making.

snip_20170926131916.png

 

 

The issue is, that I want to change the start Point in Z-Direction.

I cannot do this in my drilling operations menu. Is it possible to define a distance change of the Start Point,

in MKE ?

I tried to create a new coordinate System and teach the feature but I cannot place the coordinate system -

so my solution would be a distance change for the Drilling Start point.

 

Thank you.

I also tried to change the Start point with Top Offset, but only positive values are allowed Smiley Sad

If the hole is predrilled into some depth, shoudnlt be the preview of the IPW/feature shorter from the start ?

Remember that the new drilling operations do not need to have things tweaked in most cases, since they are checking the local IPW, which is displayed in magenta.

This is a simple STEP1HOLE, so you do the following:

  1. create a HOLE_MILLING operation that uses the TILTED_TOP_DEPTH as the depth to be machined
  2. create a drilling operation, which then only machines the remaining volume

Voila everything is set properly.

In addition I would advice you to also update to at least NX 10.0.3 MP16, which has many improvements in respect to FBM and drilling.

Hello,

 

thank you for that hint, this helped me out a lot.

I think it is also possible to do that with the rapto offset and the value of the half of the tilted depth -

so it starts drilling at the center Smiley Happy
