Re: How to use Generic Motion to fully control tool paths

Can i use a turning tool in Generic Motion?

If not can i create a user definied not revolved tool in CAD and use it in my Generic Motion Operation?

 

What is the output of the  IPW?

Can i get the IPW of the removal from my cutting operation?

I don't think so. You can use a teach mode operation in turning.

What are you trying to do with your tool? (I.e. why do you not want to have it revolving)

I have had situations with mill turns or contour heads where I need 3 dimensional motion - not to cut but to position. For these it would be nice if teach mode had some added move types. The post would have to accept these when in lathe mode (potentially.) The lathe kinematic doesn't consider the 3rd dimension.

Also - I am not sure if we have a special dll to allow this but when we flip the environment variable:

 

set UGII_CAM_ALLOW_TURN_TOOL_IN_GMC=1

 

We can use turn tools with GMC.

I want to simulate a thread whirling process and my tool profil is not revolved. The kinematic is quite difficult and i could not realise it somehow in a turning operation.

If this:

and you are talking about the ISV end of it - maybe Siemens would be the ones to comment on how to implement. To my thinking as far as an NX operation and IP - it is a turn operation from the end with one high insert.

Yeah it is absoluty this operation.

 

I already talked to Siemens but nobody could help me.

First i tried to simulate it with Generic Motion but i got problems with creating user definied tools.

 

Have you maybe an idea how to create this simulation process?

The tool can be also a cutter with no holder

Can you tell me how to flip the environment variable ?

I think you would do it in the \UGII\ugii_env.dat file with an OTB install (which is not what we have - heavily customized.) Look for "NX Customization" in this forum for ways to set this on launch.
