i want the tool change code for my nx simulation to reference the tool name and not the tool selection ($P_TOOLP). i've looking for the variable that references the tool name ($P_TOOLN???) but i can't find it.
Please could you help me out?
Go to Solution.
there is a available AC function the get the toolname from CAM by its toolnumber
How to do a toolchange with the toolname, look into the sim0xx examples within the NX installation
Within the Sinumerik the toolname can be stored with the toolparameter $TC_TP2. To simulate with that make sure to output this parameter by the Postprocessor into a *.ini file
