Hello CAM Community,

 

I would like to request for the B-axis Contour Turning Operation in NX CAM similar to the cycle that exist in other CAM softwares. Refere to the Link for Video on how this operation would look like. Wish NX CAM team had developed this operation long time back.

If this operation exist in NX11 version, kindly help to provide help documentation so that i explore further. If any of the community members figured out on how to create similar toolpath kindly share your experience here for the CAM community benefit.

 

Thank you all,

 

Best Regards.

Hello,

 

There is a possibilty to work with variable B-Axis. It starts with NX11 and is only available if set an ENV-Variable.

There is a relative Mode

And an interpolation mode

I did not do anything with it and from my sight it is very limited and not very close to you video, but perhaps better than nothing. I do not know how it goes on with it in the future...

 

If it is interesting for you please sent me a PN because i do not know if it is allowed to post Preview ENV´s...

 

greetings,

Andre
