Folks.
I filed ER 7695243 with GTAC...Feel free to contact GTAC to add your vote to this ER.

Functionalities requested are not available in NX…but currently available in Hypermill & Mastercam.

 

Hypermill:
• MAXX Roughing & Finishing.
• 5axis helical drilling
• 3D-optimised rest material roughing
• Performance boost for Z-level finishing
• High-performance-cutting (HPC)

 


Mastercam:
• Mastercam Dynamic Milling
• Multiaxis Roughing

 

 

To add your vote via web...go to 

https://webtac.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/qtac/index.php5

 

All you need is to enter your company Sold-to and in the "Short Description" :  Add your name to ER 7695243....

Is there a way to add on to this ER without calling in?

Hi Kal,

 

I can imagine a couple of reasons to use "5axis helical drilling" but I would like to know when and why YOU would like to setup a "5axis helical drilling" path.

 

Thanks in advance,

Don't forget

 

Delcam Vortex

Edgecam Waveform - milling and turning

HSM works adaptive clearing

 

All significantly better than any roughing strategy in NX - and volumill

I added to the ER.

 

Feels like throwing a hail mary at the end of a superbowl game... will Siemens catch the ball?

Once upon a time, the 2012 PLM World CIP Final Rankings had Variable Axis Roughing (module similar to cavity milling, for roughing out multi-axis parts) ranked #3 on the Siemens NX "To Do List"...

Per the ER CAM presentation dated 2012, Variable Axis Roughing would have made it into NX9/NX10...

Forward to April 2016...I am told Variable Axis Roughing is still years(???) away....

Since Siemens has done away with the CIP ER vote rankings, I feel we, the users, are no longer part of the CAM dev. process. Having said that, will the "competitors" functionalities listed in this thread & previous threads (Live B-axis turning, Sandvik Tech Guides machining strategies...etc.) make it into future NX releases...Time will tell...!

So...Yes I agree with you...it is a Hail Mary pass...hopefully to some end zone somewhere & not to some blackhole to never be seen again...but that is up to Siemens...the choice is theirs...machining-machinery technology is constantly evolving...& they need to evolve along and keep up with times!

Hopefully as this ER builds up steam with the support(votes) & backing of all users, Siemens will re-consider & start addressing our machining needs!

Here is the 2012 Rankings:
