I have a custom tool library, i have added a few new classes to it. i have created new operation templates as well. And my problem is that i cannot use de MKE with my custom configuration. I have started using it with the standar Nx configuration.

 

so now i have to resolve 2 issues.

 1- how to open and update my MKE to be able to use a new custom configuration

 2- Is it possible to transfer the info that i have with the standard configuration to my customized enviroment

Hello,

 

1.

Roughly follow these steps to import your own operation subtypes and tool classes into the MKE customization, into an existing knowledge file.

 

- launch MKE using the same environment as NX

- File --> Open and Update...

- Select the (ootb) machining_knowledge.xml

- when prompted, select the same CAM configuration you also use in NX CAM

- save the machining knowledge under a different name

 

2.

Roughly follow these steps to use your own operation subtypes and tool classes, changing existing machining rules:

 

- Use the MKE to edit tool classes and operation subtypes.

- Use the Table view for mass editing.

- Edit the machining_knowledge.dat to point to the knowledge file you chose above.

- Use the new knowledge file with NX CAM
