NX9.0 Post Process from RMB


We recently have migrated from NX6.0 to NX9 in the last month. In NX6 you used to be able to post process while a operation was open by using RMB. Can the dialogue for RMB be customized to add the ability to post process while a operation is open or is this gone forevere? My users really found this to be a huge benefit.


Re: NX9.0 Post Process from RMB

The right mouse button context menu is not customizable, as it changes depending on what is selected.


I suspect postprocess was removed to be sure that the operation parameters and tool path are saved [OK] to assure that post processing is reliable.

Thank you Mark. I will inform my users. Hate to see that go.

Being able to post-process an operation that has the dialog open is something I would really avoid.

As Mark says, you don't know if you really get what you want.

The operation should be finished and checked, so that you can make sure the tool path is reliable.
