Use the Shop Documentation command to create a report of machining operations. The report is output in text or HTML format, and can be used by machine operators, tool crib workers, and others who need specific information about the NC program.


You can create the report from any of the four Operation Navigator views: Program Order View, Machine Tool View, Geometry View, or Machining Method View. You can also customize the information that you want to see. To create the report, you can either select individual object nodes in the Operation Navigator, or you can select the highest level group node to select a set of objects. The information is extracted from the displayed view, and can include:

  • Part geometry and material

  • Control geometry

  • Machining parameters

  • Control parameters

  • Machining sequencing

  • Machine tool setup

  • Machine tool control events

  • Post commands

  • Tool parameters

  • Tool path information


When running NX 8.0 in managed mode, Shop Documentation output must be checked into Teamcenter 9.0 or later.
