Yes, I agree. I have been working in a library on my computer and it's a hard job to do. Not to create the tools, but the energies that I dispend on this is higher, if the NX would have a tool's editor, the job would be more easy.

 

Today I have using a blank file with my tools, but I'll create my library inside NX one day! lol

@IMG,

What is this "the speed and feed spreadsheet" you refer to?

Journal? Manual lookup?

It is in you install folder.  located here. Its called "smaple machining data"

I have seen this, but many job shops do not have resource library. The CAM module should not need and additional module to create CAM tools, IMO.

The CAM Module doesn’t need a add on.
You can create your own using the CAD Module Solid Modeling and create Pattern (.fac) files that run within the CAM Module. You turn them on and off by using the Display Options Integer “Pattern” “Pattern Specify” inputs.

In the new NX releases there are provisions now to use them in the IPW and Simulation.

 

Cheers.

This could be another way to proceed.

Create a directory like C:\tool_pattern

 

Create your tool models .prt files

Then create the pattern files:

https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/nx/1847/nx_help/#searchSmiley Tongueage=1;rpp=10;query=pattern%20fil...

 

 

Then run the .fac files in your session;

Turn the Pattern file ON and OFF in the CAM Module
And now use them in NX11’s IPW and Simulation collision checking.
