Importing geometry and ops
Posted 19 November 2011 - 11:55 PM
im wondering what is the easiest way to do this..
just spent many hours programming a part in x3..
Now i have another part to machine which use exacly the same operations and tools ( pocket sizes and drilled holes)ect
but the positioning in x and y is different on my second part.
So to be absolutly sure with my second part i just import my ops from the first part then re select all the geometry and points ect
then regen and i have my new positions for the second part..
Is these a better way to do this because i can still make an error reselecting my geometry on the second part..
Once i have my first part programmed i would like to use it for the second.
i would like to some how import the geometry and toolpaths and lay it over my original part to make sure all is well but im not sure if this can be done

Do you mean the pockets and holes are in different locations? Are they still the same relative to each other (i.e. pattern is the same), just on a different place on the part?
Could you just create a new WCS orgin?
