[NXCMM] How to extract operation path interpolating path?

Solution Partner Creator Solution Partner Creator

In NX10.0.3, NXCMM is able to show operation path and interpolating path
when selecting operation on part navigator.

 

(Operation path is represented blue solid line, and interpolating path is
 represented green dash line)

 

But these are only display objects, I can't select these objects.

If possible, I would like to extact these objects to export viewer.
(Ex:Vis mockup).

 

Some user hope to check both path on viewer,
so I need to export these objects.

 

If NX is able to extract them, then I can do various export method.

If you know how to extract these, could you tell me?

There are rumors, that this can be accomplished with a special post-processor that creates a JT file containing the wireframe objects of the tool path.

 

There is no simple way of exporting this for a viewer that doesn't handle pure NC code.

Thank you for your quickly comment.

 

I understood as just rumor...
but if you know more detail about below, could you tell me?

1)Can we use "Special post-processor" released NX version?
  (Latest NX version is NX 10.0.3...)

 

2)What is necessary conditions to use "Special post-processor"?

I would like to confirm operation and interpolatioing path on viewer,
(to catch raugh path image )

 

I think it isn't nesessaty to handle pure NC code.

The post-processor is a custom one and not shipping with NX.

I don't remember who had build it and if it was available at all.

 

Wouldn't a simple image be sufficient, which you can create easily during the creation of the shop documentation?

The tool path display is temporary - there are no geometry entities.

 

Are you trying to display the paths in an application outside of NX?

I see. It's a shame...

I think it's easy way too.

I'll ask customer it is enough to do thier work using shop documentation.

Yes, my customer want to check CMM path on viewer (ex:Vis Mockup), if possible.

 

but you told "tool path display is temporary."

if there is no method or API to extract path coordinate value,

there is no way to display on outside of NX...
