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,
Solved! Go to Solution.
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
Production: NX 11.0.1
Development: C#, Tcl/Tk, CSE
