Details

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

Hi

 

When there is no IS&V Machine loaded there are no Rotation axes shown.

If I reverse the direction of the Manipulator the direction is set back to its original orientation after Re-generating the Operation.

Can this behaviour be explained please?
