You can now perform gouge checking when different part and cut area stock values have been specified. The values are listed in an Information window.
Created with NX CAM 10.0.3
Gouge Check now supports non-uniform Part Offset Custom Data, Part Final Stock Custom Data, Cut Area Final Stock Custom Data, and Part Side Stock and Floor Stock in Cavity Milling, Area Milling, and Zlevel Milling operations. NX also checks negative stock for gouges, and generates a warning if the negative offset is larger than the tool radius.
