Learn about the new interactive Cut Region Management in NX CAM 9

by Community Manager Community Manager on ‎10-15-2013 03:35 PM - edited


NX CAM 9 includes powerful new options for optimizing cut patterns across steep and non-steep regions in area milling and valley rest milling. Using these cut regions, programmers can make sure that all the material is cut with the appropriate patterns, and no material is overlooked. Mold and Die programmers in particular should find this capability compelling.



Created with NX 9.0



This session will show the new interactive Cut Region Management in NX CAM 9, as well as a couple of additional enhancements similarly useful for matching cut patterns to workpiece topology:

  • Interactive Cut Region Management for Area Milling operations
  • Versatile new smooth transitions between cut passes and regions
  • Steep and non-steep pattern assignment and sequencing in Flowcut operations
