Finishing enhancements for the Curve Point Drive method make more efficient rotary milling cuts
This enhancement allows you to shift the selected drive curve left or right, allowing you to position the side of the tool to the part without modeling a curve. You can also shift the tool contact point forward or back, allowing the tool to cut off-center to avoid the tool rotational center or blind spot.
Created with NX CAM 9.0.2
