Planar Mill !


Hi, I am new to NX CAM forum, and NX 9 CAM too, ...learning.

My first question is related to Planar Mill which IGNORE the Specify Check defined in Workpiece Geometry ! so the Tool crush in my Clamps. 

I have to Specify Check Boundaries in Planar Mill to avoid this !

Why is this ? because Check Boundaries is not related to Specfiy Check ?

PLANAR_MILL works only with boundaries, if you like to work with solids use CAVITY_MILL instead.

Additionally to what Stefan_Pendl said about Cavity Mill, you can also use the Floor & Wall operation which will recognize your check geometry. Floor and Wall is more closely related to Planar Mill as they are both from the mill_planar template and are both considered prismatic operation types.
