Hi,

 

there is a available AC function the get the toolname from CAM by its toolnumber

getToolNameByNumber(<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
