Hi,

 

I want to add new tool type family on my NX CAM library, tool_database.dat.

For example, I want to create new tool families T-Cutters (Indexable) or Special Tools (Indexable).

 

Which type of code, I have to add on, dbc_tool_ascii.def, dbc_tool_ascii.tcl and  tool_database.dat? I have changed, OOTB names on dbc_tool_ascii.def, to own customized names, but I don't know how can I add new tool family on NX CAM.

 

Thanks, Igor.

Hello Igor,

 

It is easy to add a new Library Class to the def file, and couple it to an existing NX Tool Class.

In principle you can copy a section of the Tool Class in the bottom of the dbc_tool_ascii.def file and change the subtype number(QUERY  "[DB(SubType)] == [01]") to another unique number.

Then make sure you use that same Type and Subtype i the tool_database_dat file.

 

For more info. Look at the NX documentation: CAM>Manufacturing General>CAM libraries
