Problem with tool travel speed and operation times




Is it possible to change the tool travel speed? In Simulate Machine when I use Tool Path Simulate tool travel speed is really slow. For example when I make hole cutting speed is ok, but tool travel to the next hole takes too much time. When I use Machine Code Simulate everything is ok and tool move fast. When I added machine I set rapid feed to 42000 mm/min so I think problem is not here.

Second problem are differences in times. NX shows me different times for operations in Program Order View, in Shop Documentation, in Simulate Machine for Tool Path Simulate and for Machine Code Simulate. Why times in this four places are diffent?


Thanks for advices.

About your question to the machining times.

At this point in time as it is implemented the times gets calculated based on different data.

In NC Code simulation the time are most accurate as this included all none cutting and cycle times.

A prerequisite is to define the dynamic axis (Max-Speed Acceleration etc.) properties correctly, so that they should match your real machine tool.
