I have seen some pdf documents referring to NX9 having 5-axis laser machining capabilities.
I've searched the web as well as the forums and cannot find substantial evidence that this is true ? Can anyone comment on this ? For me this is what I have been waiting for. I use NX now and modify the machining operations to give the desired results , it works but I know it could be better for my non-conventional machining methods.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The new 5 axis laser machining module is not officially released, but it is available in NX 9 for preview. This allows you to try it on your parts and provide feedback before the final release.
If you are interested in participating in this, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you in tough with the approprate product manager.
Its been some time since I've seen any activity on the 5-axis laser machining. Has NX
lost interest in this ?
Thank you for the reply. I added the line to my env.dat file but did not see the Laser CAM machining setup. I am using NX 9.0.3 MP02 (Oct 30 2014)
Do I need to upgrade to the latest MP and/or be a part of the CAM Early Release program?
I am checking if the laser preview is still active.
If so, I will send the package to those that request it.
Keep in mind that setting the variable is NOT something I would recommend, unless you have read the instructions that are provided to preview participants.
