Tool Path Display and Analysis



Tool Path Analysis is a new option that allows you to graphically analyze a variety of multi axis tool path parameters. You can use Tool Path Analysis to give you a better and more accurate understanding of your tool path and help you identify potential problems before the part is cut.




Created with NX CAM 10.0.3



The results of the tool path analysis are displayed by the color of the tool path in the graphics window. The Tool Path Analysis dialog box is new.
