HoleMaking....

Re: NX 11 Do not support for Drlling

If I remember correctly, the What's New guide of NX 11 CAM mentions, that P2P from the drill template is no longer recommended to be created.

The preferred way is to use the hole_making => drilling operations.

Re: NX 11 Do not support for Drlling

you can turn it back on by opening the "cam_general.opt" file in the "template_set" folder and remove the comment from the "## ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}drill.prt" line

Re: NX 11 Do not support for Drlling

Go here: C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 11.0\MACH\resource\template_set. Open up cam_general.opt in notepad. Then remove the ## from the line that says:
## ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}drill.prt

Save the file and reload NX. Make sure you have write access first.

Hope this helps.

Re: NX 11 Do not support for Drlling

You can try my first post but I actually think this is the solution so try this first.
Go to C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 11.0\MACH\resource\template_dir and open the Template.dat file in Notepad.
Copy ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}drill.prt into the line you use most. I only 001 general so as an example my line would look like:
DATA | 001| general.| ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}mill_planar.prt| ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}mill_planar.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}mill_contour.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}mill_multi-axis.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}mill_multi_blade.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}mill_rotary.prt
${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}drill.prt
${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}hole_making.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}turning.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}wire_edm.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}probing.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}solid_tool.prt ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}work_instruction.prt | General | Inch

Yours will read in a single line left to right. Place the ${UGII_CAM_TEMPLATE_PART_ENGLISH_DIR}drill.prt where you want to show up in the order of operations.

Make sure you have write access and save the file.

Restart NX. It may or may not integrate into a previous model you are working with. It should though.

Hope this helps.

Here is the release notes about the drill.prt

Re: NX 11 Do not support for Drlling

Once you've removed the ## from the line in the opt file you can just go to Manufactuing Preferences and under the configuration tab click the 2 reset arrows and the drilling operations will show up again.

They are hidden intentionally, so that new users do not use them. If you need to maintain ole programs, then you can expose them, but you should not be using them for new work.

Please read the release notes with each new release.
