Is here anybody who actually uses NX automatic speed and feed library? Is there any tutorial or video how to define tools and speed and feed rates from tool maker database and use it automatically later in NX?
I have struggled with good solution for automatic speed and feed settings for a milling operation already so long time. I had to do something about it. Luckily I have know coding so here is work of last months.
To be frank NX solution for finding speeds and feeds from database is not good. Based on part material, tool material, method, tool dimension, and a cutting depth you cannot really find optimal speed and feeds. So I upgraded NX file that is looking for speed and feed parameters from database and added extra information to speed and feed database file. So now NX can to find automatically speed and feeds parameters depending on
• Part material
• Cutting depth
• Step over
At the end I have always the optimum cutting parameters for operation.
I’ll do presentation and video about this and shall share the link. But if you have any questions you can write to me directly firstname.lastname@example.org
