Nx Post builder help with FRN and IPM


Hi guys,


It's the first time I am posting on here, any help would be really appreciated!


I have 2 main questions for you guys:



1.  We have a 3 axis Hardinge Gx1000 with a Fanuc Oi-mc, with a Kitagawa MR200 Nc rotary table 4th axis.


I am currently trying to setup a post for it, I want to be able to machine 4 axis simultaneously. I know have to be in inverse time feed (FRN) and in G93 to make it work. I also need to output an F code for each line.


I just can't seem to figure out how to make it work in post builder? I tried importing ''pb_cmd_frn_tool_tip.tcl'' and ''pb_cmd_fix_frn.tcl'' custom commands, and I also played with Feedrate event in Program& Tool Path->Tool path->Machine control->feedrates.


2. Would it be possible to have 1 post for 4 axis simultaneously and 4 axis positional machining? If so, how could it be done?
