Depth First Ordering in Area Milling



Machine cut order regions in a top-down, depth-first manner.




Created with NX CAM 11.0.1



When using the Steep and Non-steep containment method in the Area Milling drive method, NX can now cut regions from top to bottom, ordering each set of regions according to the next highest maximum ZM value.
