Hello all,

Is it possible to suppress a Machining operation and or Locking one.

 

I would like to keep it in place in the program location without moving it to the Unused Items folder.

 

And Lock it to keep it from a regenetaion when geometry changes.

 

Thanks

Phil

Hello Phil,

 

Select the operation that you what do prevent from regenerate.

Klick right mouse button and select: "Tool Path" > "Lock"

Now the Operation is Locked up and prevented from manipulation.

If the geometry changes or something forces NX to regenerate the OP, a warning is created

After that is is necessary to accept the tool path without regenerate. 

Klick right MB on the locked OP and select "Object" > "Approve"

 

Toolpath is alive again 

 

greetings,

Andre

Have you checked the context menu of the operation in the operation navigator?

There are options to lock a tool path.

To suppress the tool path, you just need to delete the internal tool path and keep the operation.operation_tool_path_options.PNGLock tool path

 

 

To delete a tool path use the delete menu entry, which is the fourth below the lock entry in the image above.
