Collision checking siemens NX

Hidden geometry Hidden geometry is temporarily shown in the highlight color while it participates in a collision or limit violation. Example In Process Workpiece When you create a collision pair between the workpiece and another kinematic component, the workpiece is the IPW rather than the part. If you do not …

Reloading Multi-channel and mill-turn machines siemens NX

To reload multi-channel and mill-turn machines, you must define kinematic chains for each channel. Each chain: Is a set of kinematic components that connect the part to a tool carrier. Requires its own linked post. The following example creates two chains for a simple mill-turn. The first chain is from …

Axes, junctions, and zero reference siemens NX

Defining axes in machine tool builder When you define an axis in Machine Tool Builder, think of the motions as tool motion relative to a stationary part. If it is the table that moves, you should reverse the direction. Defining junctions In Machine Tool Builder, a junction is a coordinate …

Defining a Tool Mount Junction siemens NX

When you use the Machine Tool Builder, how you define the tool mount junction depends on whether a tool assembly part file exists. If no tool assembly part file exists, the X-axis of the tool mount junction must point from the tool tip to the gauge point. If a tool …

Creating a Part Assembly siemens NX

Before generating manufacturing data, you have to decide whether you want to follow the NX Master Model concept. In the Master Model concept, there is a clear distinction between the design part (part) and the manufacturing part (assy). The manufacturing part references the design part and the machine (sim010101_003) as …

Centerline Drilling siemens NX

Use Centerline Drilling to perform drilling operations with a non-rotating tool on the lathe spindle centerline with the workpiece rotating. The centerline drill operation supports two different types of cycles: Controller (canned) machine cycles — The system outputs one cycle event containing all cycle parameters and a single GOTO statement …

Teach Mode overview siemens NX

Use the TEACH_MODE operation subtype to manually define cutting and non-cutting moves. You can define the moves either individually or in a sequence. You can build the tool path by defining: Rapid and feed rate positioning moves. Engage and retract settings. Cutter movement over segments of the boundary. You can …

Roughing overview siemens NX

Roughing capabilities comprise a large variety of cutting techniques for high volume removal of material. These manufacturing practices include strategies for high speed roughing and the achievement of semi-finishing or finishing qualities through proper built-in engage/retract motions. Turn Roughing relies on the system’s automatic remaining material detection capability. Access the …

Boundary geometry siemens NX

The lines that delineate each of a part’s individual geometries are called boundaries. You can select and view boundaries in the Geometry View. Once boundaries have been selected, their parameters are inherited to the cutting operation, eliminating extra boundary selection within the operation menu. In your initial Turning session, you …
