need to know, how to handle special holder with two positions. I create this holder as a device. First possition is in turn plane (same plane as is base turret position, where is this device mounted), second positions plane is 15 degrees from first one.
There are set CSYS for each position according their planes, but if I load some tool to second position, it is still in the same plane as first one (position seems to be good,but orientation is bad). I seems that both tools are in the same plane as base turret position plane.
Is it possible to silmulate this type of holders in NX11?, Or is there any workaround for this holders?
Yes, it is possible. I have it implemented and it works good.
At the beginning I encountered exactly the same problem which you are describing.
The solution was to double pockets on a turret. In CAM I load this dual-holder to 2 pockets at the same time.
We need to have it in separate pocket, because "Working Angle" is defined inside the pocket. and in case of this kind of holders, we need 2 angles.
So at the end, geometry of the device is loaded 2 times (but in identical position), so it is not a problem during simulation.
