How to simulate CNC files without operations in NX Manufacture module

Hello colleagues,

I wonder if it is possible to simulate CNC programs in NX? I have 3D model of workpiece, blank, tools and CNC programs for Sinumeric controller. May I add general 3axis milling machine for simulation, define tools and upload somehow CNC in it? Will it work?

Thanks in advance,

Roman

Yes.

You can find it in:

Menu --> Tools --> Simulate Machine Code File...

 

And it works almost exactly as you described. You need to pay attention also for details like:

- tool numbers (tools shouldn't be in Unused Items folder). If multiple tools have the same number, ISV will pick first one.

- proper setup of MCSes (main and local) with correct Fixture Offset number defined

 

For me personally this is one of the coolest features NX has Smiley Happy
