Manual impeller manufacturing in NX CAM

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series "Impeller manufacturing" NX CAM training 3-5 axis

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series “Impeller manufacturing” NX CAM training 3-5 axisIntroduction. ‘Manual impeller manufacturing’ post series shows how to manufacture impellers in NX CAM. The instruction can also work as a training material for 3 and 5 axis manufacturing. This instructions should act as an addition to or replacement of the NX Turbomachinery toolset. Manual impeller manufacturing vs. NX turbomachinery. For manufacturing of impellers, NX Turbomachinery module is normally used. These operations allow making 5-axis movements with tool axis positioned between the impeller’s surfaces. The module contains roughing and finishing operations. Operations support InProcess workpiece and can be used alongside  with manual operations. In my opinion, NX turbomachinery operations have the following downsides: If you work in NX 8.5 or …
