Tube Rough Machining in NX 12
You can now create operations that rough complex interior surfaces typically found in manifolds and cylinder head ports. Previously, you could only finish. ...
Adaptive Milling in NX 12
Adaptive Milling is a new cavity milling operation type that uses a high speed roughing pattern to machine with a constant chip load, allowing you to reduce ...
Check out what's new in NX 12 for manufacturing Transform your part manufacturing using a digital machine shop NX 12 for manufacturing introduces powerful capabilities to boost your production efficiency and expand your business. New advanced capabilities in NX CAM 12 software for mold and die ...
Today I will demonstrate practical way of using Tool Path drive method in NX CAM. This drive method is available in Fixed Contour and Variable Contour operations. It allows us to use other operation’s tool path as drive geometry in other operation. 4-axis roughing, which I will create, is just examp...
Today, I will demonstrate two ways of creating engraving operations in NX CAM. To make most basic and simple engraved text, I use Planar Text and Contour Text operations. This operations uses NX Drafting Note object. Second way to create engraving operations is to use modeling curves. This way we ca...
Cutter Compensation in NX CAM explained
Today I will discuss very fundamental topic, which is: using cutter compensation in NX. In NX CAM (probably in every CAM actually) we usually don’t output entire NC program with cutter compensation turned on. It is used primarily for finish passes. Keeping this in mind, for example in Cavity Mill op...
Technical Tuesday is back after vacation break!
After vacation break, I’m back with new Technical Tuesday episode. Today I’m showing an example of what we can do using Generic Motion operation. Generic Motion is an operation which lets you program the tool path segment by segment. It is equivalent of Teach Mode operation from Turning. It is locat...
