To Edit a Classic Volume Milling NC Sequence
1. Right-click the Classic Volume Milling sequence in the model tree and click .
2. The NC SEQUENCE menu appears with the required commands checked. The following volume milling specific commands are available on the SEQ SETUP menu in addition to the common commands for all NC sequence types:
Volume—Create or select the milling volume.
Window—Create or select a Mill Window. This is the default option and is mutually exclusive with the Volume option. If you select the Volume option, then the check mark next to the Window option is automatically turned off, and the DEFINE WIND menu appears with the following options:
Select Wind—Select a predefined Mill Window from a namelist menu.
Redef Wind—Redefine the Mill Window used by the NC sequence. This option is only available if the window is created or selected.
If there is no predefined Mill Window, click on the Mfg Geometry Features toolbar to create a Mill Window.
ScallopSrf—Select surfaces that will be excluded from scallop computation if WALL_SCALLOP_HGT or BOTTOM_SCALLOP_HGT is specified.
Excld Surfs—Specify volume surfaces to exclude from profiling. If Mill Window is used, select surfaces from the reference part.
Top Surfaces—Explicitly define the "top" surfaces, that is, surfaces of a mill volume that can be penetrated by the tool when creating the tool path. This option has to be used only if some of the top surfaces of the volume are not parallel to the retract plane. If Mill Window is used, this option is not available. The window start plane will be used as the top surface.
Appr Walls—Select side surfaces of a mill volume, or sides of the Mill Window, that can be violated during tool approach and exit.
Build Cut—Access the Build Cut functionality.
Select additional options, if desired, and click Done. Creo NC displays the user interface for all selected options one after the other.
3. On the NC SEQUENCE menu, click Play Path to verify the tool path automatically generated by the system. If not satisfied, you can either modify the parameters, or use the Customize functionality to adjust the tool path.
4. Click Done Seq or Next Seq when satisfied.
