zlevel 5 axis

I'm looking for a bit more tool axis control in NX 8.5 ZLEVEL_5AXIS milling.  I checked the options for customizing the dialog but nothing comes up.  I want to set the maximum step and/or maximum tool axis change per step.  Is there a dialog template that I should look for?

 

Thanks

George

George,

Try generating a 3 axis zlevel path, and then using Tilt Tool Axis in the Operation Navigator.

This provides control for the max tool axis change in degrees per step and max step.

I see the option Mark but I get a license server error when I select it.  I have a MACH 3 license.  Which bundle do I need to access it?

 

Thanks

Re: zlevel 5 axis

George,

The bundles are adjusted periodically, so I don't know exactly what you have.

 

In today's bundles, it is included in "NX Advanced 5 Axis Machining [NX13440]"

 

In your license file, the feature is "nx_tilt_tool_axis"
