Planar Profile Error

Valued Contributor

I would like to test a new machine simulation and post processor using the:

 

C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 11.0\MACH\samples\nc_simulation_samples\sim14_mill_5ax_cam_tnc_in.prt

 

file.

 

When I select "Generate Tool Path" all of the "Planar Profile" tool paths:

 

1) PLANAR_PROFILE_TOP

2) POCKET1_PLANAR_CUTCOMP

3) POCKET2_PLANAR_CUTCOMP

 

cause the following error message:

 

"The tool path could not be generated because the Cutcom is inactive.

Select a valid tracking point or change the Cutcom method."

 

When I try to edit the toolpaths there is no "Drive Point" selection option??

 

Thank you for any help.

Nevermind...

 

Solution was found (finally) in:

 

1) Path Settings

2) Non Cutting Moves

3) More tab

4) change "Cutcom Location" from "None" to either "All Finish Passes" or "Final Finish Pass"

 

Very surprised a sample file would be released with an error in the toolpath.
