Adding 'sister tools'...

Newbie

Adding 'sister tools'...

In Pro-toolmaker, they have the concept of 'sister tools' to denote identical tools than can be swapped in/out after a certain amount of cutting time for die/mold work.


Has anyone been able to find a way to at least add M01 (opp stop) in a rougning or finishing sequence after a specific amount of cuttting time or distance in Pro/NC sequences?


At least with the M01, I can let the machinist know that the inserts need to be flipped, etc...


Is this possible in Vericut? Opti-path maybe? (Full version, not the NC check in Pro-Man)


TIA, (Thanks in Advance),

RE: Adding 'sister tools'...

I just got a great video tutorial of how to 'customize' an NC sequence to split the sequence, add optional retracts, opstops, etc... THANKS!


Unfortunately, I am using CREO1 NC (not expert machinist) and PTC have 'ribbonized' the interface. I can't find any remnant of a 'customize' command. I will keep looking, and thanks for the repsonse.

Christopher,


I can help you customize an NC Sequence to add any G or M codes anywhere you want in Creo 1 or Creo 2. It is very easy, but I want you to call me so I can walk you thru it.
