Basic Volume Milling

Volume milling sequences enable you to machine material inside a configured volume of material. This is useful for machining mold cavities and machining pockets and slots. Volume Milling • Remove material inside volume. • For example – Mold cavities, mold electrodes, pockets, and slots. • Toolpath removes material slice-by-slice. • Slices parallel to …

Using Site Parameter Files

You can use site parameter files to control default values in NC sequences. They can also control the range of parameter values and the visibility of parameters. Site Parameter Files • Parameter value control – Allowable range of values – Parameter visibility • Links to site parameter files retained • …

Retrieving Tool Data

You can configure a tool library where all tool data is stored. This enables quick and easy retrieval of tools by all users. Tool Parameter Libraries • Store all tool parameter files. • Use sub-folders to divide tool types. • Config.pro option: – pro_mf_tprm_dir. – Creo Parametric searches for tools from this …

Understanding Milling Tools

There are three different tool types: standard, solid, and sketched. It is important to understand the differences between each type of tool and when you should use them. Tool Types • Standard • Solid • Sketched Tool Tip Position • Along centerline of tool. • Specifies X-, Y-, and Z-positions for CL data. …

Configuring Operations

Configuring manufacturing operations forms part of the setting up for manufacturing procedure. An operation and a machine tool must be configured before NC sequences can be created. Manufacturing operations contain: • Fixtures (Optional) • Machine Coordinate System • Retract Plane • NC Sequences Figure 2 – Machine Coordinate System and Retract Plane Manufacturing …

Understanding Resolve Mode Tools

If desired, you can activate Resolve mode to manage failures. Activate Resolve mode using: • Regeneration Manager preferences – Failure Handling ♦ No Resolve mode (default) ♦ Resolve mode • Config.pro option – regen_failure_handling ♦ no_resolve_mode (default) ♦ resolve_mode Figure 1 – Resolve Menu Figure 2 – Failure Diagnostics Window …

Analyzing Open Section Failures

Open section failures occur when the open section extends beyond the solid geometry that bounds it. • Open section features must be bounded by other solids. • Failure message indicates when a part cannot be intersected with a feature. Figure 2 – Open Section Sketch Feature Analyzing Open Section Failures Figure 1 – Open Section …
