|This task shows you how to generate a from the program in batch mode.|
Always save your program modifications before running a batch
For best results, you should first verify the operations of your program by means of a replay or simulation. There should be no operations to be updated or in an undefined state.
The batch report includes a log file. In Tools > Options > Machining > Photo/Video, if Collision Detection is set to Continue, the log file will contain the list of detected collisions. For example:
Select the Manufacturing Program entity in the tree, then select
Generate NC Code in Batch Mode
The following dialog box appears.
In the In/Out tab page...
Select the manufacturing document to be processed using the
Input CATProcess [...] button. The current document
is proposed by default.
Select the type of NC entity to be processed. This can be:
Select the desired One file...
option to generate a single CATProduct:
To store the resulting NC data file at the same location as
the input CATProcess, select the Store at same location
as the CATProcess check box.
Otherwise, specify the Output file where you want the NC data to be written using the [...] button.
On subsequent batch executions, the filename and the path of the last generated output are remembered if the Store at same location as the CATProcess check box is not selected. If this option is selected, only the filename of last generated output is remembered.
|6.||Select the Replace like-named file check box if you want to authorize overwriting an existing like-named CATProduct.|
|7.||If needed, you can choose to write the CATProcess document after processing. Just select the Save Input CATProcess check box and specify where you want to save it using the [...] button.|
|8.||Select the Replace like-named CATProcess check box if you want to authorize overwriting an existing like-named CATProcess document.|
|9.||Select the Lock operations check box if you want to lock all the machining operations after processing. Please refer to Locked Machining Operations for more information.|
In the Tool Motions and Formatting tab pages...
Certain option settings may have an influence on the generated
CATProduct. Please refer to NC Data
Options for more information.
The NC Code tab page is not useful for generating CATProducts.
|10.||Click Execute to request computation of the CATProduct.|
