Flowcut region management



You may now create and manage cut regions for flowcut operations without generating tool paths.





Created with NX CAM 9.0.3



The new Cut Regions button allows you to create and manage flowcut regions without generating tool paths. It simplifies user interaction and reduces overall processing time. The Cut Regions dialog box has been enhanced to allow you to create, delete, defer (deactivate), and import deferred cut regions from other operations.


To use this self-demo, save the attached part file locally and follow the instructions in the pdf document.

I am using NX 12.0.2, is there a way to update cut regions when they are valid and out of date without deleting the cut regions then re-creating cut regions?

Ask GTAC to get added to ER#8346170 (copy cut regions when operation is copied) and ER#9027774 (allow updating cut regions) for earlier implementation.
