Band Width for Drilling Sequence Optimization



Eliminate unwanted zig or zig zag passes caused by holes that are not aligned.





Created with NX CAM 9.0.3



The new Band Width option allows you to eliminate unwanted passes caused by holes that are not aligned when machining zig and zig zag hole patterns. This value is a tolerance that allows zig or zig zag passes to deviate within a specified width to include holes in each pass that are not perfectly aligned.


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