Post Configurator now uses an integrated TCL editor to more quickly edit and validate TCL code.
Created with NX CAM 10.0.2
The editor uses colored text to help you manage:
code completion to display valid variables
methods for you to choose from as you edit
It includes syntax validation to help you find coding errors, and provides the ability to select any TCL-based file that is sourced into your post. In addition, Customer Defaults allow you to specify default settings for the Post Configurator.
To use this self-demo, follow the instructions in the attached pdf document or see the video below.
(If you have problems with the embedded player, you can download the attached .mp4 file.)
