Get information about chamfer cutter (NXOPEN)

Hello

 

I am using the NXOPEN C API to get the information about a Chamfer Mill, I can not find the parameter to ask the information about the Chamfer Length (C) in the API.

For example for tool dia we have in the API like

 

UF_CALL(UF_PARAM_ask_double_value(m_ToolTag, UF_PARAM_TL_DIAMETER, &paramValue));

 

We need to have a similar for getting value of chamfer length in API   (UF_PARAM_TL_XXXXXX). Which parameter could it be?

 

Thanking in anticipation,

 

Kind regards,

For the newer tool types there will be no named parameter.

C and GRIP are not extended to fully support the new tools.

You have to use the new builders to get all the information available for a tool.

As @Stefan_Pendl said, since chamfer mill is a relatively new tool type, it is only available in .net. Attached is a vb boiler plate example to create the tool builder. I think you would need to add another level based on the Tool Subtype.

It is possible to query an object for its param indicies 

 

as the others say there is no named param

however

 

Indice = 7357
Name = (null)
Type = UF_PARAM_TYPE_DOUBLE_LENGTH
Definition = Tool Chamfer Length
Status = UF_PARAM_OVERRIDDEN
Inherits From, CHAMFER_MILL
Default Value = 0
Current Value = 2
