You can now reduce the time required to simulate and evaluate NC code by skipping subprograms and suppressing the program listing and graphic display output.
Created with NX CAM 10.0.2
The new Step Over option executes the simulation without listing subprograms, allowing you to evaluate the main program more quickly. The new Suppress All option reduces simulation processing time by suppressing the program listing and waiting until the end of the simulation to update the display output.
To use this self-demo, follow the instructions in the attached pdf document, or see the video below.
