ISV - How to simulate solid assembly tool rotation

Legend
Legend

I can see from the MRL Demo video that it is possible to also have simulation on tool assemblies. We do have quite complex shape tool assemblies here and I'd like to find out how to enable this, if a feature, as per this video:
https://youtu.be/qhOE6zwwbmU?t=542

 

I have my assemblies defined by CAM templates. Enabling Machine Builder on the tool assembly reveals the CUT and NONCUTTING, CSYS, spuns, etc, everything seems in order. Any checkbox I'm missing anywhere to get this rotation simulated?

 

Thanks

There's an environment variable you can add to your ugii_env.dat file.

 

UGII_ENABLE_CUTTER_SPIN=1
