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
When I select "Generate Tool Path" all of the "Planar Profile" tool paths:
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.
Go to Solution.
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.
thanks to you for bringing that topic to our attention. We will take care and fix that inside the provided data.
