NX Floor and wall operation creates complete tool path along pocket from top level in closed area

NX for Manufacturing



User tried generating tool path using "Floor and Wall" operation giving blank thicknesses for wall as well as floor in closed and open area and noticed the following:

1. In case of open area, the tool path generated only walls up to the floor blank thickness level and then starts cutting the floor which is desired.

2. In case of closed area even after giving same inputs as in case 1, the tool path generated cuts entire pocket from top level which is not desired.


We can control this in Cutting Parameters -> Connections -> Across Voids -> Motion Type -> Follow then it will cut only walls and floors with respect to the blank thickness.
