Hi together, does NX have a possibility to create ton cutter for milling out of the box? And does NX have an operation for conic ton cutter? If not, which operation would you suggest? Best regards Frank

This topic interesting for me: what about BARREL TOOL from NX? Of course, non-parabolic, but radius. barrel.png

I open some HOFFMAN webpages - I dont understand why "parabolic" - true radius, huge radius, Rw=500 (for example).

You can use BARREL TOOL from OOTB

Thanks Yury,

in NX1847 we already have a better way to define the tangent Barrel:

in NX 1872 you will be able to easily define Taper Barrel (ignore the ugly temporary pictureSmiley Frustrated):Taper Barrel.jpg
