Parameter Visibility
Some of the manufacturing parameters need not be changed at the NC sequence level. You can set them up in a site file, and then remove them from display when you are modifying the NC sequence parameters. Similarly, you can specify which parameters are to be listed when you output the Manufacturing Info.
Parameter visibility can be specified using the following means:
When you set up site parameters, two columns are available for each parameter:
SET UP VISIBLE—Specifies if the parameter should appear in the NC sequence parameter list when creating or redefining NC sequences.
INFO VISIBLE—Specifies if the parameter should be listed when you display Manufacturing Info.
The default values for all parameters are YES for both columns. If you set a value to NO, this parameter will not be visible.
If you specify that a parameter is invisible in NC sequences, it must have a set default value before the site may be accepted by Creo NC. If you set a parameter with a "-1" value to be invisible, the system will issue an error message and allow you to re-edit the site table.
The Visibility option in the Edit Parameters menu allows you to modify parameter visibility:
When setting parameters at the operation level.
At the time of creating or redefining an NC sequence.
When you select this option, a Pro/TABLE window appears with the list of all parameters and the two visibility columns, as described above.
