Are there any recommended tutorials/help documents on how to setup and utilize the VNCK? Can the VNCK be run independently from NX CAM's machine simulation ?
I did look through the included documentation (VNCK_reference, etc.) and the online help documentation.
The VNCK runs together with the NX Simulation in the "Virtual Machine" as part of the ISV (NX CAM simulation package). These solution usually is provided together with a machine tool OEM and the customization is done by the OEM related to the specific machine tool.
Yes, it's possible to run the VNCK idependently from NX CAM.
Siemens AG provides workshops on how to use the VNCK with a basic GUI and how to program your own applications using VNCK-API.
