Alternate methods using Knowledge Fusion siemens NX

Feature-based machining can be accomplished by different methods: Knowledge Fusion (KF) based Feature groups come first, then processes. Classification criteria is defined within the feature subtypes. Holemaking and Holemilling use multiple specialized feature template subtypes, such as SIMPLE_HOLE, that each contain machining knowledge, classification criteria, and so on, that are …
