NX Planer Mill Functionality

What purpose dose these changes accomplish?

I would like an explanation as to how it makes the operation better.

Material side vs Tool Side?


On boundry and Tangent  selections? What has happened too.

First member?

Start Point?


So what happens to all the programs I made last week using NX10 Planer Milling?
How about last month? One year ago ?


I do not understand implementing Hole Milling Functionality/Feature Base Operations into the simplistic generic planer milling module. The Hole milling features are great in Hole Milling. In Planer Milling I find after 24 years of using this product it has constricted the simplicity of simple profile boundary selection and boundary manipulation using curves.

With all the choices of other Feature Base Operation Programming Modules it makes no sense to integrate this functionality into what once was a very easily Simplistic operating feature of NX.

Why fix something when it is not broken? Because something new works well in a New Feature does not mean it will improve an older simplistic legacy feature. This is why customers are asking how to turn legacy drilling back on.

I have created new Operation Templates as the new Feature Base Programming improvements have been made available. I have built an extensive library of Template Operations over the years and use them all on a regular bases in the Scope of programming a wide variety of disciplines.

My Company executives have been trying to switch to a cheaper programming system throughout the Corporation for quite some time, but have not been able to because of the productivity of the programming department at my facility using these simplistic programming features.

Is there something I have missed? Have I overlooked something? Is it just another change that is incomplete?


The facts of nature and of life are more apt to be complex than simple. Simplistic theories are generally one-sided and partial, wrote the American clergyman James Freeman Clarke in the 19th century, nicely illustrating the difference between plain, ordinary simple and the then-new adjective simplisticSimplistic is generally synonymous with oversimplified, but we didn't have the verb oversimplify and its participle oversimplified until well into the 20th century. Simplistic is sometimes used in the neutral sense of "not complicated" (in which case it is synonymous with simple) but this borders on misuse-simplistic is generally understood to be pejorative.
