Hello, I am finding that I can't alter the tool axis in MOs when
I "assign a machine from file" and select a 5-Axis machine that I
built in Machine Builder. If I select the generic "5-axis machine"
I can alter the tool axis no problem.
I just ran into a similar issue. Mine
was where tried cutting at B0 and B180. I used profile
contouring at 0,0,1 tool axis (B) picked all my geo and
Then when I tried a new MO
with a 0,0,-1 tool axis, at B180 I could NOT change the tool axis.
I tried both from copy an existing mo, or just clicking on the
profile contouring icon and starting from scratch.
Finally... I got it
resolved by setting tools + Options + Machining+ Operation +
---> .....when copy....duplicate geometry
Does anyone have any Asprin?
