What is machine control?

What does the control allow?

I.e. can you have blocks like: 

- "G1 X Z B"

- "G2 X Z [I K or R] B"

 

etc.

Yes!

How to you get toolpaths like this with tool tilting?

Sorry, I was wrong.

Tom van 't Erve gave a talk at PLMworld 2017 ("Prismatic Parts Machining Enhancements in NX 11")

 

A couple notes (from presentation)...

- preview project in 11.0.1 (round inserts) & 11.0.2 (rhombic inserts)

- Limited to tracking point P9 (center of corner radius)

 

I assume you would have to contact GTAC to get the magic ENV (or whatever) to turn this on.

KEN A is right.
This was the feature demonstrated at the time of version 11.0.1, with other competitors currently showing such features
However, we can not recalculate the tool path because this will cause errors.
And also can not output post by Mazak I200 or other machine 5 axis mill-turn
It is a bit puzzled.
Attach the file to provide the test.

try this. I use it to compute the holder angle.


global mom_out_angle_pos
global mom_tool_axis
global RAD2DEG

if {![array exists mom_tool_axis]} {
      set mom_out_angle_pos(0) 0.0
  } else {
      set mom_out_angle_pos(0) [expr $RAD2DEG*atan2($mom_tool_axis(0),$mom_tool_axis(2))]
}

 

But I have noticed that not every angle is computed in your case.

There is something wrong with tool axis vec.

 

example G03 X160, the tool axis  is 001, but there should be something to output your B10.
