Makino EDNC workpiece touch (continuity) probing, is it possible in NX?

Hello,

The subject sums it up fairly well.  We need to inspect workpieces in the machine so I am curious if it's possible to output a program from NX which a Makino EDNC (E and F controls) could use for touch (continuity) probing.  The controls can do this right now, either programmed at the control or by using a software called EDcam from Makino, but I would like to do it in NX.  I spoke with a Makino application engineer and it sounds like the post output isn't that difficult but naturally he was steering me to EDcam.

 

Does anyone know if this can be accomplished in NX?

If it is controlled by G&M codes, or macros, probably.

We would probably need some more info on the specifics of the G&M codes and parameters involved.
