We have a several operations which are done by same insert, Actually There are 5 operations and These are:

**2 outside finish turn

**2 face finish turn

**one of them is angled face finish turn.

We try to do these 5 operations in NX with creating only one turning operation because these five operation use the same insert.


In NX I know that; I can define one turning operations and I can say that cut dia. first or cut faces only etc.


But i don't know that, can i define these five turning operation in NX with creating only one turning operation???is it possible ?? and how???


Below pic. you can see my five operations and these operation's specific order...

In general, if using a "finish OD" operation template, I would do these as separate operations.  Maybe not 5, but definitely more than 1.


You can do this in one operation using teach mode, but you are going to be doing a LOT more picking.
