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.
