Hey guys I have a question about solid tool models, is there a way to include my spindle speed, feed rates, step downs, and step overs in my relations? I have been trying to get them to work but, when i use them in a nc sequence my rpm, feed rate, ect do not come with my solid tool model. Anyone have any info on this?
No go on the mfg_param_auto_copy_from_tool, It seems like Pro doesn't recognize the feed and speed relations, yet it will recognize the coolant options.
I confirm, I have almost all my tools as solid tools, and parameters never copy. I have to do it from the menu, edit>parameter>copy from tool.
This makes loose really a lot of time !!
The current system is not an ideal way to manage speeds and feeds. I prefer to use the process manager templates. You can predefine any combination of sequences and quickly apply them to your next job. For example I have roughing - re-rghing - surface milling - and finishing sequences with all my Tools, speeds and feeds predefined. All i have to do is create the mill windows and select surfaces for sm. I will try to make a video in a bit.
It works for me (but coolant option). Do you select stock material?
Our tool files contain data for several stock materials. I am not sure if is necessary.
Create this file:
with stock materials.
I believe there is a case filed with tech support about the parameters not populating sequences(Case #11340102) . This was also discussed on the exploder a few weeks ago Jose Coronado is aware of the problem because he asked if anyone turned it in to Support.
