Cutter Parameter change units?

Cutter Parameter change units?

In the tool change dailog box where the cutter definitions are there is a Feeds & Speeds tab for the cutters parameters.  On that tab there are check boxes for "Finishing Feedrate per Tooth:" and a seperate one for "Finishing Feedrate:".  Both of these are in IPR which you would expect for the per tooth box but the "Finishing Feedrate:" box will only display in "in_turn" (IPR).  It is a calculation of the tools parameters, fine, but I would like that to show Inch Per Minute (IPM) feed rate.  Is there any way of changing that field?  I tried all of the right click options and I didn't see anything that looked like it would do the trick.

Any and all help is appreciated!

Thanks,

Hi Norman,

Sorry, Direct feed input in the cutter technology is an ignored enhancment request on the books since John McCain was in 7th grade.

got to do the math, and enter the chip load, or IPR.

 

If that fuzzes you up let the world know.

Dassault people say....."It must be OK as is, since no one is complaining too much"

Hi Norman,

I believe they kept it like this because the same dialog box is used in the Lathe machining workbench.

I tried to report it back in 2007. And my VAR then Incat tried to explain the chip load and how to use it. It was/is pretty annoying and a waste of time especially when folks on the other end dont understand the requirements.

So I learned to live with it and use it the way it is. I'll email you a little trick which I believe I had posted somewhere here before.
