I try to get probe radius for touch probe NX tool, no results. My probe from liblrary, libref is ugt0402_001 (NX10.0.3.5) and I cannot to get radius of probe. I must to say - no any records in lib about probe radius.
When I run getToolParameter getToolParameter("UGT0402_001","Length1") - I received 122.00,
but for getToolParameter("UGT0402_001","Radius") - 0.0 always.
I need probe radius to simulate exact probe motions in CSE......
Solved! Go to Solution.
that is a known limitation as the probe inside the NC CAM do not have a radius parameter.
Only way is to work with $TC_DP..=radius and use it in CSE.
The open problem is how to set these value.
Sorry no solution yet an ER exists.
Thanks, really good idea and I can check it. But more easy add field to sub-operation dialog "Probe radius" and output Q999=radius, and use this var for subprogramm.
Thanks for @schauerm3!
Now I have realesed his idea about UF for prob radius evaluation. I open solid model of my prob and set name for probe face "PROBE_RADIUS".
But usually probe or any tool component supressed in assemby tree, in this case I set expression sup=0 for suppress component and sup=1 for unsuppress.
I run my UF, set expression to sup=1, ask face "PROBE_RADIUS" for probe radius and set sup=0.
Working! You can see a short video.
Thank you for idea!
