I doing turning operation. cut region is shown bellow.
When creating the tool path, it is generated as below.
Each separated area is an X value of the same diameter.
So I want to create a linked tool path.
Is there an option?
If you uncheck Update IPW in the gooveing operation NX thinks the materail is still there. The ROUGH_TURN_OD operation machines it. I tried using Ignor Member in Custom Part Boundary Data, but got the same result as you showed.
Another option is to add "blank" stock (probably radial in this case) (cutting parameters -> stock tab).
Make it more than the groove depth.
Note it will add blank stock to the ENTIRE model, so you may have to use "cut region" containment to NOT cut other areas.
I'm not sure if you can use "custom boundary data" to add stock to just the groove elements of the boundary.
Yet another option is to use teach mode to do an "axial" move from the start point to the end point. (If you try "profile" it will still break it into different sections)
