Tool Path Simulate siemens NX

Use the Tool Path Simulate command to simulate machine tool motion before postprocessing the tool paths. Because Tool Path Simulate does not require a postprocessor or machine tool driver, you can analyze manufacturing operations earlier in the programming work flow.

The software uses the loaded machine kinematics for simulation and collision detection. The Tool Path Simulate command supports IPW and collision checking.

Where do I find it?




You must have a tool path and a machine with kinematics defined.
