Re: Floor and Wall Generation time

I have not noticed any other significant issues. NX11 had a very slow display of the tools and I would key through the "tool navigator." That issue seems better in NX12. 

 

One small issue in NX12 I have noticed, is sometimes the graphics will not refresh even when I hit "refresh (F5)" I have to use the "Regenerate Work" command instead. Sometimes a toolpath will get stuck on the screen, or the highlighted faces of selected geometry in an operation will not clear when opening a new operation. 

 

 

I do not use FBM much since my parts/features vary greatly, so I can not comment much on that.

FBM is just the tool to fill out the settings of an operation. If you use the same template part and template operation, you should not notice any differences between an automatically versus a manually created operation of the same kind with the exact same settings.

If it takes 20 minutes all of a sudden, then this is most likely a bug you should report to GTAC.

 

Although this is not related to generating tool path, there is another Customer Default for the Floor and Wall Milling Preview. If you work on large parts it is recommended to turn it off. Manufacturing --> Operation --> General --> Preview --> Floor and Wall Milling Preview

Changing this will only affect newly created operations, so you will have to manually disable it for existing ones.
