Machine tool Builder Problem: Can not define Kinematic Chain

Hello

 

I have been trying to Define Kinematic Chain in NX 10.

Some reason Defining Kinematic chain in NX10 machine tool builder,

i am not able to select any linear axis or PART and so on....

 

Any Ideas what is wrong??

 

All axis are defined and model works well in NC code simulation.

But I need to limit its kinematic chain to 4 axis machine.

Make sure you have the kinematics components on the TOOL end classified as _DEVICE and POCKET otherwise these branch will no taken into account for chain definition.

 

SPINDLE -> _DEVICE
  |--POCKET  -->DYNAMIC_HOLDER

 

You can compare with the examples shipped with NX.

Thanks Thomas

 

Missing piece was PART_MOUNT_JCT, After Defining this Worked well.
