Working on a mill-turn where they want full IS&V.
They will be using "multi" tool holders (AKA "flash" or "miniturret" tooling)
for example Sandvik C5-ASHR3-36123-20 - http://www.sandvik.coromant.com/en-gb/products/pages/productdetails.aspx?c=C5-ASHR3-36123-20
When defining the tool library tool & tool geometry for this type of holder, how do you do it?
Separate tool ID for each insert / position?
Then separate tool geometry / assembly file for each insert, with the tool rotated to the correct position?
Or something else?
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
Currently, we recommend to use a device as multi tool holder and insert individual tools in each position.
We are developing multi-tools now, which you should probably see around NX 11.0.2 or later. @Ken_A let me know if you would like to see a demo.
Well, we'll be on NX10 for a while yet.
How do I set up the junctions so I can mount a "regular" tool or a "device" in the (live tool) "spindle"?
