Engage path problem - Solid Profile 3D

Valued Contributor
Valued Contributor

Hello,

 

I have a problem with my engage-path - I can change my engage settings,

but the engage path does not change. So I get a collision with my tool.

Maybe there is a problem with my MCS coordinate system.

Here is my engage settings for the solid profile 3D

Hi Muddi_91,

would you mind attaching the part? Would help to have a look.

Thanks in advance

Change your mininum clearance value from none to a distance

Hi, Muddi_91. This seems to be a potential PR, but I want to help debug the issue before you have to report this. I want you to try something to help me understand the root of the problem. In the More tab of the Non Cutting Moves dialog, uncheck the Collision Check box and regenerate the tool path. Post a picture of the results if you can please.

Hello,

 

thank you for help. I have unselected the collision check and the engage can be changed now.

But one issue is still the same. The tool path makes a step when the feature is machined.

I have already tried to fix this, but I did not find a solution...

Hello,

 

here is also the model where I have the exactly same issue.

 

Hope this help to solve the Problem. Thank you Smiley Happy

 

I have also tried with the Operation Contour Profile (mill multi-axis), but I cannot generate

any tool path!

You have a legitimate problem. If you can, please take the time to report an IR with GTAC using the same part file you provided here.

 

In the meantime I have provided a good workaround for you in the attached part file. I used a Profile 3D operation rather than a Solid Profile 3D operation. I used the same NCM's and Z-Depth Offset that you previously specified. I also had to turn off the NCM collision checking as I told you to try before. The main difference between our tool paths is that yours is driven by the solid and mine is driven by a boundary. There is a problem with the cut region in both since they use the closed area engage in an open area, hense turning off NCM collision checking, but at least the boundary driven path isn't creating the strange vertical motion that was gouging the wall.

 

Let me know if this helps and be sure to report this to GTAC. If you do, forward me the IR number and I will explain the issue directly to the developers.

Hi Muddi,

had a look at your part.
Would you mind contacting GTAC and attach the part?

Thanks in advance

Hello,

thank you for your help. unfortunately I cannot open the part because of the higher version you are using - I tried to open the part with NX 11.

I will report this issue.
