The new “Floor and Wall” milling operation makes it easier than ever to machine prismatic parts.This flexible solids-based operation uses model faces to machine typical prismatic features such as surfaces, open and closed pockets, slots and corner notches without the need to define boundaries. See how to pre-configure this flexible operation for specific scenarios with operation templates.
NX has several options for customizing your CAM environment, including building your own template operations for common use cases. The Floor and Wall milling operation covers lots of different applications, and you might find it advantageous to tune your templates to best match your common use cases. The development team built several new templates for this operation, with the idea of covering some of the most likely use cases for this operation.
In this Tech Tip, Tom shows us the templates, and invites us to use them too! Template files are attaced below.
