Hi @kimies_saida,

 

If you are using the XZC template post and the post are configured using the default tool axis as X Axis, the post will work automatically for cylindrical interpolation mode.

I hope this helps

Hopefully that works because it would be some work for the post to make lines and circles (considering radius of depth) out of point vectors. I have no experience with setting this up - seems I would have by now. I am interested in testing this.

Hi @kimies_saida,

 

When I send the first reply I haven't seen the G07.1(G107) reference on the upper left corner of the image.

The configurations I recommended to you for a postprocessor is for use the G01 motions.

 

So you can machine the cylindrical interpolation using G01 X Z C moves.

 

We always use G01 motions for this kind of operations.

Other than doing lots of "post magic", the only way I've thought about (but never done) is use the modeling wrap/unwrap functionality to unwrap the edges onto the appropriate plane(s), then use Planar mill.

XYZ coordinates should be "good" for G7 (with minimal post work)

Use a UDE to get the G7 (or whatever) output.

 

Otherwise you can use VASC, Sequential mill, and rotary floor and machine in XZC mode.

Thank you

 

It is not applied by default.

By default, the output to the G01 in 3D circle section.

Would you teach me how to set the output to the G02/G03 in 3D circle section?

OR Would you send me the sample tcl file?

I think you have two choices. Draw something that represents the rolled out geometry and use planar mill (it seems I have seen that someone automated this with api) or use this output and convert it in the post which would require taking this point and rotary output (or point vectors if you prefer) and compress it to lines and circles. I have nothing written to do it - but can see it being usefull. The point is that NX has no kinematic setting that will help - and it will not be a quick/easy thing to code - would have to look through a series of points and simplify to lines/circles.

It is much easier toi convert if you are ok with no simplification (converting the points to less points and circles.)

Note the first case of code shown (with multiple "C only" moves) -

Import the custom command file "pb_cmd_combine_rotary.tcl"

Read the header of the file for how to use it.
