Hi! I have a question about the "Group Features"-Function in NX10. I have 3 identical STEP1HOLEs on the circumferential surface of a cylinder. I don't want to work with "Create Feature Process" but I want to create a feature-group to work with it in NX10. How does this work? I can't create a feature-group an I can't work with a single feature, I don't get it in CAM.
Thank you for your help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You probably need to change your MCS definition. Each recognized feature has a local CSYS; the Z direction of that local CSYS determines the (primary) machining direction. Feature groups will only be created under an MCS if the +Z direction of the recognized feature matches the Tool Axis setting of the MCS. There are 2 different ways in which you can setup your MCS Tool Axis
If your MCS Edit dialog doesn't show the Tool Axis, then you can assume that it is set to +Z of MCS (you can use Object -> Customize to add the Tool Axis to the dialog if needed).
We have just finished an enhancement that should give users some better messages in situations like this where Group Features is not able to create (additional) groups.
