I have a part which i need to use Multiple datums in Turning to finish the part. Untill now i have followed to save IPW and Create a new model for the second turning MCS or I will craete 2 MCS for the same part and blank and I will ignore the Stock which will show on the side where i machined already. This has started giving me problem on complicated parts.
My question now is, is there any way in NX 11, I can change the setup structure, where I can use the Datums with updated IPW ?
Even though the drawing uses two different faces for dimensioning, I do not think you need to use 2 MCS for machining. Once you create a turnign profile in Modeling application using 2 diffrents WCSs/datums, use this profile and one MCS to generate operation in NX CAM.
Did I misunderstand your requirement?
