Hello,

i'm saying one Suggestion for Cam Improvement and really its need for many users.

 

i make many programs in one day so many program needs many post processes and it need lot of time,

 

so i'm suggest to need improve post processing many programs in just one click like powermill.,

 

just two step process

 

     (1)one time define post processer file 

     (2)folder to nc file place 

 

and then one click to all programs are post process.

 

This is more time save to programming for die mold.

 

i hope your better understand for time saving is important so make this changes in next update.

You can also post process using UG Post.

 

This is an application outside of NX so you can post process while you do other things.

This can be done with some customization to the post.  There have been several threads in this forum about this.

Do you have the ability to edit your post processor and are you using Post Builder?

Another option is to write a journal to cycle thru the operations (either "all in part" or "selected") & post each one individually.

Either hard-code the post, or put up a dialog for the user to select the post.

You'll have to decide how to handle a group if found/selected (e.g. "L-1-S2" in your picture)

- should all the operations in the group be posted to one file (i.e. you will post the group object itself)

- or should you ignore the group & post each operation individually.

 

There are some example journals that cycle thru the objects in the ONT in

...\UGOPEN\SampleNXOpenApplications\(select language of choice, e.g. ".Net")\CAM

No i have't the ability to edit your post processor.,

 

I know all the operations in the group be posted to one file..

 

i'm saying add this option to nx.

 

e.g. i'm select all 11 to 19 and say apply , result is all program post but in one file.

        i am need all post in individually file (like powermill). 

 

i think your not beeter understand what i'm needed?

so i'm giving you a clear example.

e.g. i'm select all 11 to 19 programs and click to appy in post process dilog box.,

        i'm need result to all file post but not in one file, "it post all program in individually file in just one click apply"

  

so It is possible to add this feature in nx cam (like delcam powermill).

If you want to, go to the GTAC site (or your VAR) and submit an IR, which will be turned into an ER.

It will either be a new ER, or they find an existing ER to link to.

 

You can post your ER here, to ask others to file a "me too" ER to add support.

 

But i don't expect it would get much priority.

 

You can write a journal to do this, and customize that journal as an icon in your ribbon, so it is just as easy to post using the journal as the regular "post process" icon.  And you can be doing it now.
