Toolpath in NX

[ Edited ]

Dear

How to creat a Toolpath the same this Picture in Unigraphics NX 10 ? I can do that in MasterCAM and some  CAM Software.

See the attached part file for one way.

 

Depending on the shape of the part, there are other options that might work better, especially for complex shapes.

Dear Stefan Pendl

Thanks you for your help!

it very good for me.

Re: Toolpath in NX

I was able to create this tool path using Contour Milling with Streamline drive method, and helical/sprial cut pattern.

Re: Toolpath in NX

Streamline and contour surface area are nearly the same.

 

The difference is that streamline creates the drive surface based on the selected milling area.

In the background a single drive surface is created from the primary and cross curves, which can directly be used by a face creation option in modeling.

 

Some machines work better if you use z-level profile and staggered ramp on part, because they don't like the helical moves due to the output as a huge amount of linear moves.
