NX12 annoying IPW display when selecting CAM operations

Experimenter
Experimenter

When reviewing and selecting toolpaths in manufacturing, NX will show me a pink solid facet body of the blank I am using for that operation. it completely blocks the view of my toolpath and I want it to go away. the only solution that "works" is right clicking, then "show 3d ipw", then "delete ipw". is there a setting I am missing somewhere that will disable the blank from view when selecting operations?

Try the following

Customer Defaults>>Manufactoring>>User Interface>>Operation Navigator tab>>Selection group>>uncheck 'Display Operation Geometry'

OK the dialog and restart NX. hope that this will resolve the issue.

Would be nice that there was a different option to only hide the blank.

 

When I select an operation I would like to see the toolpath and the cutting area thats selected.

Especially with the new replay functions because when "Displey Selected Objects" is not active you have to select the operation, then display the toolpath and only then you can replay the toolpath.

Have you tried to change the display of the blank geometry through the customer defaults for manufacturing?

May be change "Customer Defaults => Manufacturing => Simulation & Visualization => IPW => IPW Translucency" to meet your needs.

That option is only working insid "Verify Tool Path".

 

I would like to be able to hide the blank when selecting the operation in the ONT and be able to replay the toolpath directly like you see in the picture below.

So the solution would be to create an ER at GTAC, post its number and text here and we add me-to IRs for it.
