Wire EDM Geometry selection

Pioneer

Hello All,

 

I have developed a single file, with a large number of shapes, that uses the suppress by expression. I was hoping to use this file to automate a 2-axis and 4-axis Wire EDM function. I have found that it doesn't seem to be possible to automate the geometry selection process. 

 

Does anybody know of a way that this can be done?

 

Thanks in advance,

You can automate the geometry selection only by using FBM (feature-based machining).

 

WEDM in NX 8.5 does currently only recognice straight walls not tapered ones, but of any shape.

Stefan, thanks for the reply. I am not real familiar with FBM, but I am currently doing some studying on the topic. You say that tapered walls are not available in NX8.5, I noticed it is not available in NX9 either. Anyone know if it will be in NX10?
