Saving the specified tool axis in fixed axis operations.

Created with NX CAM 11.0.1



On multi-axis machine tools, multiple machine tool axis angle positions may be valid for cutting the part. NX now saves the specified tool axis with the operation.

We have the same Probleme here!

The machine allways turns arround the Part in the preview when we change the angel in the operation.

And if we regenerate the operation, the C axis value turn back to the beginning.


If there is someone who know a solution, please help Smiley Happy
