Did spiral cut pattern for area milling make it into 11.0.1?

In a pdf from last summer's PLM World event (Manish Patel?) I saw slide which showed a spiral stepover in area milling.  Did that cut pattern make it into 11.0.1?  I am not seeing it so I am wondering if it was left out or if it is preview project.

Sprial in area milling is still only available for EAP testers. I expect it to be released in NX 11.0.2.

Can we see a picture of this path?

How is this different than Follow prephiery with outward

 

This will put this spiral shape on any face?


What about the "spiral" drive method?

There are no stepovers

It might, but you may not like it. Many shapes (C, L, islands) can lead to an unacceptable pattern. This is targeted at more basic shapes.

No plans to change this. The existing spiral drive is a true spiral for a circular shape.
