Hey,

 

NX Cam - JAVA.

I got a Point to Point Drilling operation.

Is there a way to reach to the relevant face\s?

 

Thank you,

Tom.

P2P doesn't use face information in the way drilling operations do, so I doubt there is a possibility other than checking the drill locations and search for faces around them.

Hey Stefan, Thank you for your answer.

Do you have any idea how can I do that?
How do I perform a search around a location?

Sorry, never had a need to do this, so I don't know what is needed in detail.

The other issue with PTP operations is that (largely) you can only use GRIP to automate them.

Siemens has stated there are *no* plans to ever support PTP with API (beyond what is already there).

 

*IF* you can, try to use holemaking operations instead.

If you come up with limitations in holemaking (and youhave time) file IRs with GTAC, and see if your issue is a PR or an ER (Enhancement).  If the latter, you can post the ER number here so people can file "me too" ERs to increase the chance the ER will be implimented sooner (rather than later...)
