Easily output the name of the postprocessor file into shop documentation

Editing the postprocessor using the new command MOM_set_attribute allows the program or operation attributes to be automatically added when the operation is postprocessed. Shop Docs can then output the name of the postprocessor output file (PROGRAM.ptp file) by customizing the shop doc template.


Adding CAM attributes for shop documentation in the post.gif


Created with NX CAM 9



The new functionality in this project is the ability to edit the postprocessor using MOM_set_attribute so that the object attributes are automatically created in the part file when the operation or program is postprocessed.


To use this self-demo, save the attached files locally and follow the instructions in the pdf document.

Can you only use this command to write attributes to the operation object?  I tried writing an attribute to the Tool object but got an error.




Just following up here - This command is for operations and program groups only.

This was answered in the discussion forum when it was asked there:



When using the MOM_set_attribute command can you specify the attribute Category?
