NX Tip of the Week – October 31, 2014
In NX CAM, you can change Feeds and Speeds in multiple operations at the same time. An example may be if you have 10 milling operations using the same cutter and you have your part programmed with Feeds and Speeds set for cutting Aluminum but then you want to use those same operations on a part made from Mild Steel. Instead of opening each individual operation to change the Feeds and Speeds values, you can do this all at once by using Object > Feed Rates. Below is an example of changing multiple Spot Drilling operations that did not have any Feeds and Speeds values generated.
1) Select all of the operations that you want to change:
2) Right click and select “Object > Fee Rates”:
3) In the Feeds and Speeds dialog, enter the desired Speed and Feed values and click “OK”:
4) Now notice that each operation has been changed according to the values that were entered:
