Benefits and Description

A kinematics assembly model for a NC machine, defined using Pro/ENGINEER Mechanism, can be associated to a Pro/NC workcell. You can use the machine model during tool-path simulation to dynamically check for collision between tool, holder, fixtures, machine components, and the reference part. Additionally, You can activate basic collision checking in the CL player to enable collision checking between a tool (including solid tools) and any component of the manufacturing assembly other than the workpiece.
