You can now graphically jog the robotic arm and define machine poses. Once defined, poses can be used as start and end positions in operations. Fully controlling the robot positions between operations is essential to a safe and predictable program.
Created with NX CAM 10.0.3
You can now graphically jog the robotic arm and easily define machine poses using the new Jog and Poses option in the Ribbon Bar. Previously, this would have been accomplished with a user defined event, manually entering numeric values copied from the Machine Axis Positions dialog box. The new method lets you quickly confirm the intermediate positioning graphically.
