MOM Variable for Shank Diameter?

Does anyone know if there is a mom variable that allows you to capture the shank diameter as defined in the "Shank" tab of the tool dialog window?



I'm aware of mom_tool_shank_diameter that is only avialable for Barrel and T-Cutters.  This variable appears to pull the shank diameter from the neck diameter field.  I'm really after the shank diameter that is defined in the field shown above.

Have you already tried to enable the review tool, when you create a shop documentation or NC code?


Give the option to search for a recognizable value and look for it in the review tool.

there are also some text files created, where you can search for the value more easily.

Re: MOM Variable for Shank Diameter?

Cool. Found it.  It is mom_tool_tapered_shank_diameter.  I found it by opening up the  .._debug.out file that gets generated with the Review Tool on.  Thanks for pointing this out!  I didn't realize NX was writing the debug.out file with the Review Tool.  Very nice!
