I'm trying to use dynamic toolhandling in the tool axis tab in operation planar mill. I was expecting to see the tool in the spindle and by moving the tool the whole machine moves along within the machines limits. This doesn't happen. Only by tilting the tool, I get a warning this isn't possible. I've seen examples where the tool is in the spindle and the machine moves along. I want to use this to check if the limits of my machine are reached in the operation.
Thanks in advance
Planar milling is not a multi axis operation, it is strictly fixed axis.
Best is to use one of the more recent operation types, like variable contour, which are true multi axis operations.
Floor wall should be supporting this in a better way too or cavity milling, which are better replacements for planar milling.
Check the example you have seen for the type of operation used.

You should be able to set the fixed tool axis in a planar milling operation using Dynamic, and see the machine tool position. To verify this, open one of the sim08 samples and edit one of the planar profile operations.
