I have two parts on a machine table,every part has it's coordinate system(G54,G55),it's operation,same tool,table rotate beetwen them 180 deg.,and still when simulating with machine simulation there is no rotation of table.The two operations are made on the same position.Is there anybody who knows these things,I am so frustrated because I have followed the help documentation and still there is no good result.
I have to do a boring with a boring bar.How the F.. do I program the M19 and the rectraction on side direction to take out the tool from hole?
I know that other softwares considered weaker than NX do it and the mighty NX doesn't?
I can't help with the simulation. In NX there are a couple of ways to program a boring path as you described. Does the machine have the cycle for this? This is a cycle/bore,nodrag in NX
To program the motion you can use Sequential mill with Point to Point motion or create a Generic motion operation.I have even seen this done with planer mill but that is a little more tricky.
