Which PB release or NX release respectively?

Some things that you import are not listed in the motion sections, you can only access them from the custom commands section.

From the solution center it seems that there is only the way through the custom commands section.

Hello,

open the PostProcessor file .PUI in the text editor and add the {Helix Move} line in the #Motions section. After saving and opening the postprocessor in PB, Helix move appears.

From the custom commands import the pb_cmd_helix

 

add the PB_CMD_init_helix to the start of program event

 

You should get Helical output  - read the header in the custom command about making any changes.

I don't think manualy editing the .pui, .tcl or .def files is recommended.

In my postprocessor missing helix move motion. Output for helix operation (hole milling) is in linear mode. I'm looking for a way to add this motion.

I think we have provided the techniques to add helical motion to a post.  If this does not work then I wold suggest contacting GTAC.
