Create smooth non-cutting motions in Zlevel operations



This enhancement allows you to easily create safe, smooth, efficient transitions between cut levels in Zlevel operations.





Created with NX CAM 9.0.3



These new Smoothing options override many of the parameters that would otherwise need to be specified separately for Engage, Retract, and Transfer/Rapid moves. In most cases, the default smoothing values will give the desired results. 


To use this self-demo, save the attached part files locally and follow the instructions in the pdf document.
