Sinker EDM



Just wondering if anyone uses NX Cam to post output to a Sinker Edm?

We are looking into the functionality of the Electrode Design module, but I dont believe that it outputs a program to a Charmilles Roboform for instance.

Is it possible to setup a post to output a full EDM sinker program, I am not interested in the wire edm.

Currently electrode design has no direct support for generating an EDM program, but you could create an Excel sheet containing the positions and create a VBA macro to generate the EDM program from that.

Also you could create your own NXOpen dialog to generate the EDM program.

I would also create an enhancement request at GTAC to get notified when this function will be available in NX.
