1. ANIMATED SIMULATION
ANIMATED SIMULATION FUNCTION B
Following tool patterns are available for C–axis animated simulation.
X–Z side view X–C face view
End face cutting
Tool holder is drawn only in X–Z side view. Tool Diameter (DT) and Tool
Length (LT) parameters among the tool data are used to determine width
and length of the tool picture respectively, with following exceptions.
Width of the center drilling tool picture is determined by the Cut Width
(DS) parameter and Length of the tapping and reaming tool picture is
determined by the sum of the Tool Length (LT) and the Biting Length
Maximum number of the tools, which ANIMATED SIMULATION
FUNCTION B can handle, is total 128 including both turning and milling
tools. Among this limit, maximum number of turning tools allowed is
128, and maximum number of milling tools allowed 32. If more than 128
tools are registered in the tooling information, only 128 tools of least
significant tool selection numbers are drawn and simulated on the screen.
Machining process is simulated as follows.
1) Turning simulation
X–Z side view: Tool motion is simulated on the screen and
machined part of the blank workpiece disappears as
tool runs over it. Tool path is also drawn on the
screen in accordance with the state of the TOOL
X–C front view: Turning simulation is not performed in this view.
