Is it possible to select a closed loop as a Guiding curve? I get a path if I select only a few of the outside curves, But no path if the entire periphery is selected.

 

I am still on NX 12.0.1.7 MP1

sure close loop is a very legitimate input!
in this case you selected to cut only on the right side of the curve. try both it might resolve the issue. In this case please open a PR since it should have worked.

I tried all options, I'll open PR.

 

Edit: The "Both" option worked, but wouldn't the "Right" be the face that is to the right of the guide, looking in same direction as guide?

Hi Eddy,

 

will it be possible in future to use also torical cutters? This would be really helpful because I really often have to make programs for surfaces where I´ve to control the cutting sequence of the toolpath. And with stream line htis is not possible.

 

Thanks and best regards!

Yes, the team from Eddy Finaro will start to enable that feature during the next months. It should be available for testing at the beginning of next year.

We will definitely enable this tooltype and already think about others as well (Tangent Barrel). So step by step we will work on your requirements :-)

We are very glad to see you all like Guiding Curves!
