Get Parameters for instanced/Transformed toolpaths

Creator

I transformed a toolpath at an angle of 90 degrees to 4 corners. Say after 1 year , if I need to know the angle I have used for transformation, how to get it in NX?

 

Kind Regards

Been known to use the note feature in the process, under description.

 

You can write pertinent information here. Great for us with memory issues.

 

If you turn on the note column you get an icon when there are messages written. Hover over to read them or open up the process, like user events...

This can be a real challenge. One thing you could do is review the transformed tool path and build some geometry to reference the location of the tool at the transformed location.  You can do this using the Analysis – Measure Distance and set the Results Display to Create Output Geometry.  Now you can create a line through the tool for example.  You could also create CSYS at the face of the tool at some point.  You then could then Right Click on the operation and select Object – Delete Transformation.  Putting the operation back to the original position.  Then re-create the geometry or CSYS at the un-transformed position. Sounds like a lot of extra work to me but you should be able to figure the angle or position. Based on the from and to locations.

Make a fresh copy of the original operation and regenerate, then delete the transformation and regenerate again, then compare the difference between the two. 

 

I have noticed the the transformations values from RMB->Information seem to be in the absolute coordinate system, which is confusing.
