Included Angle in Tapper-Tools

Where does the (IA) "Included Angle" in Tapper-tools come from in the NX10-Interface for Tapper-Tools?

 

 

I can't find it in any DEF-File. It's frustrating to upgrade NX. Smiley Frustrated

It is in the library, along with the tip diameter, and they are tied together.

See INCA and 88.88889 below for the tap I just exported:

Thanks Mark, but we don't use the ASCII-Library. We use TDM and if I get tapper-tool from TDM in my interface the parameter "(IA) Included Angle" and also the parameter "(TD) Tip Diameter" are missing:

 

 

Were do they come from in the original-interface? What do I have to do to get them? If I create a tapper-tool in NXCAM the interface the new parameters are included.

Re: Included Angle in Tapper-Tools

The UI template is usually set in library_dialogs.prt . I don't have TDM, but expect it to use the same UI templates.

You will have to ask the TDM support, since this is something that they need to provide.

Re: Included Angle in Tapper-Tools

Assuming TDM uses our NX library system, the tool dialog for a tool retrieved from a library should come from library_dialogs.prt.

 

The problem is that the TAP tool in library_dialogs does not have the new items. I'll look in to how this happened and get it fixed, but for now you can easily fix this yourself by copying the dialog customization from the tap in the hole_making template:

 

Open template_part\metric\library_dialogs.prt

Go to the tool view, select tool TAP, MB3, Customize From, OK.

Edit TAP and verify that (IA) and (TD) are in the dialog.

Save the part

Repeat for the english file.

Re: Included Angle in Tapper-Tools

Jobe or Mark did either of you figure this out? I am having the same issue with Zoller and they are having issues figuring it out too.
