Controlling Simulation Tolerances



You can now specify separate Chordal and Tilt Tolerance values under Manufacturing Preferences to improve both quality and performance during simulation.




Created with NX CAM 10.0.3

The new Tilt Tolerance option under Manufacturing Preferences allows you to specify separate Chordal Tolerance and Tilt Tolerance values to improve both quality and performance during simulation.
