Application to organize and rename CAM operations and groups

Application to organize and rename CAM operations and groups

This week I would like to present one of applications which will be available within NCmatic Toolkit for NX.

 

NCmatic Toolkit for NX is a set of tools, which will automate everyday tasks of NX CAM programmers. The reason of developing NCmatic Toolkit, is to make work of NX-user easier and faster.

 

Tool which I’m presenting today is responsible to organize your operations in elegant form. There are two possibilities available:

 

  • Automatic rename operations. Following parameters can be used to build the template of operation names:
    – Sequence Number
    – Operation Type
    – Operation Subtype
    – Method Name used in the Operation
    – Name, Type and Subtype of Tool used in the Operation
    – Name of current Part File (prt)
    – Name of Selected Program Group
    – Name of Parent Group of the Operation
    – Additional custom String

 

  • Automatic organize operations in groups. Each group is a sequence of operations using the same tool. Sequence of operations stays untouched, operations are just grouped. Following parameters can be used to build the template of Program Group names:
    – Sequence Number
    – Name, Type and Subtype of the Tool
    – Name of current Part File (prt)
    – Name of Selected Program Group
    – Additional custom String

 

 

 

All those parameters can be set in any order. While modifying name template, you will see actual preview of operation name, so you can see example of a result even before application does it’s actual job.
You don’t need to setup template of names every time, it can be saved as default at any time.

 

Below you will find short movie showing how this application works.
