Nice to see this in NX.

 

Exactly 3 years ago, I wrote an App for Narrow channels which is still in use, to program 3-5 axis contour toolpaths in a desired step milling pattern to support variable level, variable step, variable depths. This also aids lights-out machining. Serves as an alternative for Sequential mill Looping option. Could introduce spring passes at needed areas . All of this in a simple interface with editing capabilities..

Hi,

 

I tried to use this nice feature but I don't get the expected result. The trajectory obtained is not different from the sequence of my 2 initial operations

 

I am using NX1851 release

 

In which release does it work?

 

Regards,

Franck
