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 …

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 …

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 …

Non Cutting Moves options for roughing siemens NX

Engage page options Let you control how the tool approaches the workpiece. For each point in the machining process the system differentiates between engage/retract situations. For each of these situations, you may specify a different type of Engage or Retract method. Retract page options Let you control how the tool …

Drilling operations siemens NX

Use drilling operations to machine simple holes. For more complex holes such as counterbore holes or undercut holes, consider using milling operations. Drilling operations use a point-to-point processor to generate tool paths. Several drill Operation Subtypes options are available, in which a tool is positioned to geometry, fed into the …

PLANAR_MILL siemens NX

Use Planar Mill to machine parts with vertical walls or walls that are parallel to the tool axis. When creating a Planar Mill operation, boundaries are used to contain the tool path. The tool path may be a single pass, multiple passes, or a pocket. The cut volume may be …

CAM Customization siemens NX

CAM allows you to completely define the manufacturing environment in which you will program. NX is delivered with a manufacturing environment already defined. The advantage of the NX system compared to other systems is that the description of the environment has been greatly expanded and you have the ability to …
