How to video: Post Configurator Session 5 - Multichain introduction

Siemens Legend Siemens Legend

(view in My Videos)

 

Hello,

 

this session is dealing with an introduction in the Multichain feature of Post Configurator which was introduced in NX11.0.2 and how easily it is to set up the properties for different chains, e.g. the toolchange for milling and turning. To use the Multichain feature you have to setup an environment variable (NX11.0.2 - NX12.0.1):

 

set UGII_CAM_POST_CONFIGURATOR_MULTICHAIN_PREVIEW=1

 

The Post Configurator Multichain feature will be production ready with NX12.0.2.

 

Any feedback and questions are welcome.

 

Best regards

Thomas

Hello Thomas,

 

Is there a way to use the multichain feature creating a post without a machine kinematics?

 

Thanks.

Hello Jean,

 

yes it's possible. You can do that with the Tcl command LIB_GE_conf_add_chain, e.g.:

 

LIB_GE_CONF_add_chain CreateChain "AddByTcl" "Additional Chain" -1

After adding this chain you can use it in the same way and set properties to the chain in the UI.

 

Best regards
