NX CMM Inspection Programming

NX CMM Inspection Programming. NX softwares CMM Inspection Programming capabilities provide a off-line programming that reduces programming time, frees up expensive CMM machine resources and ensures fast responses to design changes. By combining industry knowledge and best practices with process automation, NX CMM Inspection Programming streamlines the entire CMM inspection program development process from feature definition and path creation to program generation and validation. Integration with Teamcenter software ensures that the correct revisions of parts are programmed and executed on the shop floor.

NX CAM: Example of a NC program including subprogramming for a multiple part

Example of a NC program including sub-programming for a multiple part setup including on-machine probing, which writes measured values into external log files which are then passed to a quality system (CAQ).  The complete NC programming task is done with NX CAM from Siemens and UserCycle, which is a NX addon tool for cycle programming. Also the machine simulation is running under ISV, the integrated simulation and verification module of NX. Only one station of the part family setup is programmed, the other 3 part programs are create automatically through the postprocessor. All probing operation are created as machine cycles. The NC program and the simulation are done for a DMC 60 U with Siemens 840D solutionline control.

NX Tip: Ribs for Molded Part using Extrude Command

This NX Tip video shows how to extrude with intersecting section curves in one feature. This is very useful to construct the complicated ribs for a molded part with single feature. First you have to create a "self-intersecting section" - where curves of the section intersect each other. Then select the curves. Use the Extrude command and give the desired height & select offset to two sided and you will see that the ribs are created. This has been shown in detail in the following video:

Nx Command Tutorial: Swept Feature, Circular Array & Trim Body

Creating a Cutout Using The Swept Command : Commands used in this tutorial are Swept, Trim Body, Grouping, Circular Array. First guide curves and section is drawn & kept ready for swept command. Using swept commands swept surface is created. To create a cutout Trim Body command is used. Group is created for Swept surface & Trim Body. Then circular instances are created by using circular pattern command.
