Feature Based Turning

Creator

Hello,

 

I have been trying to develop feature recognition for simple turning parts.

 

As a first step, I am trying to create feature recognition for a part with just two steps. 

 

Assuming the chuck is at the left side of the part and performing OD turning operation from the right, I would like to set the axial containment to the extreme left of the component, or at a distance from the chuck. I am able to set the radial containment.

 

I was wondering if somebody can help me out in this..

 

You have a nice weekend !

Thanks,

Jithesh

I use containment turning geometry groups to do this (although not in a FBM environment)

Hi Ken,

 

Thanks a lot for the answer...

 

I too tried with the containment types.. However, I did not understand why you mentioned "not in a FBM environment"

 

Did you mean, by using a separate file with toolpath as template ?

 

Best Regards,

Yes (I think).

We haven't had a chance to putz with FBM (being on NX7.5 doesn't help either).

So we machine the old way - creating tools & operations from templates one-by-one.

Hello Sir,

 

Are you developing feature recognition, or are you developing machining rules for recognized features ?

 

In the machining rules, you can define the axial and radial containment based on feature parameter values. Have a look at how it's done in the ootb rules for turning.
