Not that I know of.
If the settings show up as mom variables, you could do some "post magic" to compare them & warn you.
Could be a good place for using expressions in CAM (if they were supported)
Would be even better if they directly support this sort of turning.

I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
I probably didn't explain it good enough. I got a sample part when my company bought a post from siemens. I looked at it again and saw that is is called an instance . How do I go about doing this? I am not sure what it does, I assumed it linked tool paths in some way.
The sample part is in NX 8 if you need it.
If you right click on an operation - Object->Transform and set to Instance - other operation objects are created with a refence to the first one. Is that what you are asking?
Thanks that was it. I take it that if I want it to start from a point from the beginning of the instance and then go to the gohome point at the end of the instance then I have to create an extra generic motion operation separate.
I kike to think of instances as one set of operation parameters, with several tool paths.
So changing something in one operation does not really update the others - it is the same parameter.
