Allowed violations of part geometry



Gouges are no longer reported when drilling non-modeled holes, tapping holes, thread milling holes and bosses, machining non-modeled chamfers, and engraving.





Created with NX CAM 9.0.3



The Gouge Checking option only reports actual gauges such as those caused by a tool that is too large. Material correctly removed from the threaded volume is no longer reported as a gouge.


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