Generating 3D Tool Assembly

Hi all,

Does anyone know a way to generate a 3D tool assembly from a parametric tool? In my understanding the Export Tool Part command is considered to be used with existing 3D tool assemblies to export them along with a parametric tool.

Is there a way to start from the parametric tool getting the 3D tool assembly parts?
Best wishes,
Joachim

Re: Generating 3D Tool Assembly

try this:

create a new part, start manufacturing

create the tool, with shank and holder, if necessary.

turn on manufacturing preference 'Display Selected Objects' 

select the tool in Machine Tool View of Operation Navigator, the tool is shown with tip on WCS origin.

select Wave Geometry Linker in Assemblies Toolbar (Assemblies Application must be On) 

select Type Body and turn off Associative

 

then select the bodies from the displayed tool and press OK

the bodies are copyed in the work part. You can  now [ modify the bodies if needed ] export the tool to library and turn on Export Tool Part File option to save the tool part to UGII_CAM_LIBRARY_TOOL_GRAPHICS_PATH.

hope it helps

ciao

[ Edited ]

Begining in NX 10.0.2, in native mode, you can select a tool and right click > Object > Export Part. Each section ot the tool (flute, neck, shank, holder) is a solid within the exported part:

  

This replaces several tricks that users used to use (like the one above) or grabbing the temporary tool from the assembly navigator.
