Finding machining features siemens NX

Find Features lets you create machining features from different sources: Feature Identification selects standard features and User Defined Features (UDFs) from the part model. This method requires a part model that was created with features. For more information about UDFs, see User Defined Features. (This method is often called Design …

Machining Feature Navigator siemens NX

The Machining Feature Navigator palette has two hierarchical views that you use to create and manage all machining features in a Manufacturing part file. The Feature View shows features in the context of the part or assembly to which they belong. The Group View shows features in the context of …

Simulate Machine Code File siemens NX

This option allows you to select a machine code file and to simulate it using ISV. The system then translates G-code into tool axis positions and presents the results graphically. MTD model The MTD model requires: A plug-in installed which you have to initialize with machine-specific information. A cam set-up …

Controlling animation speed siemens NX

What is it? You can now control the animation speed in machine tool simulations by changing the number of frames that appear in a simulation. You can make a simulation run slower by increasing the number of animation frames, and run faster by decreasing the number of animation frames. The …

IPW simulation options siemens NX

What is it? When you visualize material removal, you can now choose between motion-based IPW updates and length-based IPW. Why should I use it? Use motion-based rendering when you want the fastest performance in rendering the resulting IPW. The tool position may be updated several times during a motion, but …

Tool Path Simulate siemens NX

Use the Tool Path Simulate command to simulate machine tool motion before postprocessing the tool paths. Because Tool Path Simulate does not require a postprocessor or machine tool driver, you can analyze manufacturing operations earlier in the programming work flow. The software uses the loaded machine kinematics for simulation and …

Running the Simulation siemens NX

Once you have prepared the machine tool, its related objects and the machine tool driver, you are ready to use it while defining machining operations. You need to perform the following steps to machine a part: Load the machine tool manually or from a template. Mount parts and fixtures. You …

Creating a Kinematics Model siemens NX

The kinematics model describes the movement of a machine tool. In ISV, the kinematics model: Groups together assembly components from the geometric model to form significant kinematics components. Defines dependencies between kinematics components. It defines parent-child relationship between components such that when a parent component moves, its dependent children also …

Setting up ISV siemens NX

Before you can use the machine tool model during the manufacturing session, you need to do the following: Define the machine tool assembly – Using the Assembly functionality, define the machine tool geometry model as an assembly part file. We recommend conforming with the master model concept (see Creating a …
