Dear all


Can we do the taper spiral?

The customer wants the milling taper teeth .. but is the customized taper angle

If you want to do milling, what good way?

I guess you would like to have a toolpath that looks like a helical motion. Today, you can do that with a Z-Level-Profile operation by setting the Level to Level with Ramp on Part and setting the Ramp Angle you want (See the attached picture).


We are looking forward to introduce a new Helical option as a Steep Cut Pattern in future versions.  


I hope that is what you needed. If not, please feel free to clarify.

Re: I wants the milling taper teeth,How can I do?

I think you are asking about a tool path for machining tapered threads? When you say "teeth" are you talking about cutting a tapered pipe thread?


I am using NX10.0, and only see regular "helical" thread mill options. I'm not sure if there is a "tapered thread mill" option in NX. Hopefully a guru will jump in and let us know if that is possible somehow. (For comparison, Mastercam has supported cutting tapered threads for at least a decade...)

NX will automatically create a tapered thread tool path for NPT threads, as an example.

You only have to use the thread milling operation.

If you need a different taper angle, however, (IIRC) NX threadmilling doesn't allow editing of the taper angle.

You can define a tapered helix curve, then use (I thonk) FASC & drive method = "curve"
