How to change the unit system during programming?


Re: Unit System

Tool and Operation parameters are in the units of the work part. When you go to File New to create your CAM setup, select the units you want to program in. These do not need to match the untis of the part you are machining.


Another option is to select different units when you postprocess.You can pick an inch or metric post, or in the calse of a dual units post, just select the units you want for output.
