Teach Feature Mapping and Operation Sets



You can now Teach Feature Mapping and Teach Operation Sets. This capability is particularly useful when specific machining workflows are required and must be applied consistently to commonly used feature types.




Created with NX CAM 11.0




This example shows the recommended workflow that companies should use to teach NX the set of operations required to machine company feature types. While this example teaches NX operation sets to machine holes, you can use the same workflow to teach NX any feature type. This example uses a separate teach part, which is the preferred method.

The first video in this article shows how you can Teach NX to map the standard feature types to those commonly used in your specific work environment.

The second video shows how you can Teach operation sets and apply the machining rules to machine a part.
