helical milling, arc to linear output-CLSF source

Hi,

 

my name is Alex and I have a question regarding CLSF source output. I have tried to find such topic, but I did not succeed.

I would like to ask you guys, how to make CLSF output GOTO's instead of CIRCLE. I would like my post-processor to generate G01 and not G02/G03 in the helical milling cycle. Would someone be willing to show me how to do this?

I tried to modify    pb_cmd_helix - set mom_kin_helical_arc_output_mode LINEAR   MOM_reload_kinematics 

but that did not do anything. Is this only for post_processor and not for CLSF output?

Thank you very much and have a great day!

 

Regards

 

Alex

As the CLSF uses something similar to "turbo" mode in NXPost, I'm not sure ths is possible (Someone with more knowledge, likely from Siemens, would need to answer)

 

Note you CAN control this in your NX operations.

If you are using the "as installed" dialogs, under the "Machine control" block is a setting "Motion output type"

Set that to "Line" and you will only gte linear moves.

Unfortunately when helical milling is used that option is not there. I cannot change Motion Output Type to Line.

You could use Planar Mill with a helical engage.

You can customize the Hole Milling dialog and add the Motion Output Type to the dialog.

Hello,

 

thank you for your help. I have tried it, unfortunately it has not helped. It does not do anything.

Thank you anyway.

Hi,

 

it is me again. I've tested ti again and it works. It has not done it properly the first time.

 

Big thank you, sir!

 

Best regards
