I followed tutorial videos to setup 3 and 5 axis kinematics models in NX 10 in the Machine Tool Builder application. I saved my part files and when I try to open them, I get this message:
"You cannot enter Machine Tool Builder with a kinematics model that is referenced by a CAM setup.
Use Machine Tool Configurator within the CAM application instead."
I've searched for the "Machine tool Configurator" within NX's search as well as Google and I cannot find this application. If anybody knows how to access these files agian, it would be appreciated.
the message is slightly misleading. You find the "Setup Configurator" in the "Machine Tool Navigator" on the left. Please note that is NOT the Machine Tool Builder. It looks similar but the functionality is limited and all modifications refer to the CAM-Setup.
Just to follow up, this message is changed in NX 11 (or 11.0.1) and now reads:
