I try to make a postprocessor in NX10 using the postbuilder and the samples (sim03_mill_4x) available in NX for a 4 axis machine. X,Y, Z an rotating B table.
I've made an MCS for each position of the B-axis in NX but do not get the correct angle output (mom_out_angle_pos). For each position I get B0.
How do I have to set the MCS to get the correct angle?
Could somebody help me with this problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The MCS Sholud stay in the same orientation. The tool axis tells the Post what the B axis angle is.
For a B of 90 the tool axis will be parallel to the X.
You don't need to have a MCS for every rotation position. Keep it in the center of rotation.
What version of NX are you using?
Please be aware, that the sim03 post works specific for Offsets and subprograms. you will find more information in this file: Working_with_OOTB_MACH_Simulation_Examples.pdf

I'm using NX10.
In the file Working_with_OOTB_MACH_Simulation_Examples.pdf I've found the solution.
In each local MCS I have to set the "special output" on "Use Main MCS" and I get the correct Angle.
Thx to all for the reply.
If I set a Main MCS in the center of the table and a local "fixture offset" for each table position the PP prints correctly always B0. But I need to print the correct value of B axis for each position. How can I do it?
