Calculating Machine Times siemens NX

The synchronization manager shows you the time each machine event begins in the channel list. Generally, the start time of the next event is the end time of the previous event, with the exception of synchronization events. The system does not automatically recalculate machine times when you make program changes, …

Working with Dwell Events siemens NX

A dwell event causes its channel to wait for a specified time span. You can define this time span in seconds or revolutions. You can: Create a dwell event by selecting the desired cell in the channel list and: Selecting Insert Dwell Event from the right mouse button menu. Choosing …

Rearranging the Tool Path Order siemens NX

The ability to rearrange the tool path order in an interactive fashion during synchronization gives you enormous capacity for optimizing your NC program. This is where the fine-tuning of the program occurs. When you rearrange the order of the operations, remember that: You can only rearrange in the collapsed mode. …

Synchronization Manager overview siemens NX

The synchronization manager is the interactive tool for all synchronization tasks accomplished within the NC program. It allows you to modify your NC program to optimize idle times and tool usage. It shows your NC program separated into channels that represent the carriers in the Tool view of the operation …

Defining Lathe Spindles and Lathe Work Planes siemens NX

You define a lathe spindle in the Machine Tool Builder by classifying a kinematics component as _LATHE_SPINDLE. Every lathe spindle must contain one junction to define a lathe work plane. This is the plane where the tool tip moves during turning operations. Furthermore, the lathe work plane junction defines the …

Preparing Channels for Your Machine siemens NX

You can subdivide an NC program into several channel lists that are executed simultaneously on the machine. A channel list controls individual devices on the machine. You define all available channels in the Machine Tool Builder application using the Channel Definition dialog. Assign devices to channels using the check boxes …

Part Conversion Warnings siemens NX

The following warnings may appear when entering the Manufacturing application and displaying a part containing operations generated in a prior release. These warnings continue to appear until the operations in question are regenerated. Trim Boundaries in Cavity Milling Cavity Milling operation under a geometry group with defined trim boundaries will …

CLSF Manager siemens NX

The CLSF (cutter location source file) Manager allows you to manipulate and display the indivitual tool pathes and/or the entire CSLF by using the options below. A tool path contains GOTO points and other tool path descriptive data (e.g., MCS location, tool parameters, and display settings). Each tool path is …
