Using modeling expressions in operations?

Has anyone requested this enhancement as explained below? Is there any plan to intoduce this in future NX versiosn? In Modeling, define expressions and use it in Machining operations.. e.g. Cylinder_Diameter=100mm Cylinder_Length=Cylinder_Diameter*1.5 Cutter_Diameter = Cylinder_Diameter*0.1 Then use 'Cutter_Diameter' expression from modeling to define cutter diameter.

Note as there's thousands (if not tens of thousands) of posisble places, Siemens would appreciate it if you could indicate the ones you are interested in.

Re: Using modeling expressions in operations?

I am interested in the most common cases where you would use these.


For example, in your case above, we would probably recommend FBM to select the tool.
