Problem with turningtools in pockets with NX12

Is there a known problem in NX12 with turningtools which are located under a pocket?

Every time when we change to a different part or if we change from Operationnavigator to Tool-Machine-Navigator and back all the turningtools which are located under a pocket are loaded again. We work in TC. It takes a long time. Milling- and Drillingtools doesen't have this behaviour.

If I locate the tools outside the pocket the tools are not loaded again.

It does not matter if it's a lathe or a milling machine. The key is the pocket.

A different key is TC. Nativ it works without problems.

Please look at the movie.


Thank you all for answering.

Production: NX12.0.2, FBM | TcUA
Development: VB.NET, Tcl/Tk

This problem is not known by the NX CAM and MRL development teams.

I suggest to open a GTAC call for this problem.

NX 10 is not under maintenance anymore. This means most likely there will be no fix in NX 10.

You could also do a test with a newer NX version and check if the problem is already solved in the new release.


Hope this helps...
