    Because we already had Vericut before NX and the machine simulation comes included in the NX package we have to buy for 5 axis. The NX simulation isn't missing functionality just lots of effort to...

    I agree, it isn't cost keep thing. We already have the NX 5 axis and the NX machine simulation. Just takes lots of time getting everything all set up on the CAM to match the machines in the shop. We...

    It is very expensive up front. But the most expensive part is all of the hours and hours of work getting it set up to work like all of your machines in the shop actually run.

    So I have only looked at this briefly. I don't see a way to address going from A+90 to A-90. Yes it will show you and allow some control for 3 axis toolpaths one to another operation. I will as this...

    Yes, we do this currently. But this method is slow and does not show in simulator in the CAM.

    We have used this approach some. Only draw back is it isn't the most efficient especially if you run larger machines.

    5 Axis Transition Moves

    When programing a 5 axis part in CAM how do you handle the moves from say A+90 to A-90? Do you program this motion or let the post handle or maybe something else? I am currently at point where I want...
