Rectangle Broaching Tool

Is there a way to create a rectangle tool in NX for milling? I'd like to simulate the broaching operation.

Re: Rectangle Broaching Tool

If you are driving it like an end mill, then add a part file for a library tool. Here a solid part or assembly is associated with a parametric tool, such as a mill.

 

If you are driving with generic motion, you can use a Solid Tool. Here there is no parametric tool - only the solid and CSYS to locate it. Search for "Solid Tool" and "Add a solid tool to the tool library" in the help.

Bumping this thread up from the past.

I got the tool to be correct using tool assembly however NX spins it when creating the cut. So my rectange broach still cuts a hole and not a square corner . Not a huge deal just nice to verify it.

Verifying with machine simulation? I think its not possible.

 

Did you see this thread?

 

BTW, how do you define your operations for broaching? Creating curve sets for features and then using those within the contour ops curve/point drive methods is a long way to go, any better methods?

Hi        

 

Edit the assembly Tool in the library and using the machine tool navigator see if you have the "Cutting_Spun" and / or "Non_Cutting_Spun" defined. if you have tose - simply delete them.

to get them back right click on a component and select the Spin Geometry (which you don't want in the case of Broaching..)
