Defining and editing units-only subposts siemens NX

The dialog box to define and edit a post processor shows the name of the currently open post processor in its title bar.

Values from the main post are shown in blue boxes that cannot be changed in this dialog box.

Values for the units of the subpost appear in white boxes that you can modify.

The following main tabs are available:

Units Parameters

Values default to standard conversions of values in the main post.

If your machine and controller manuals specify different values from the automatically converted values, you can set them on this tab.

WORD

Values for word formats are defaulted to the same number of digits, with a shift in the decimal point.

For example, if the format is 4.4 in Inches, it is represented in this dialog box as 9999.9999.

The metric format is automatically converted to 9999.999.

If your controller recognizes a different format for alternate units, you can set it on this tab.
