Use the "Contact" tool position on Area Milling boundaries to precisely control finishing boundaries



Trim boundaries can now use a Contact tool position. This allows you to more accurately machine the area you wish to finish in Contour Area operations that use the Area Milling Drive Method. In addition, Contact tool position allows you to create an open trim boundary defined from points or curves.




Created with NX CAM 9.0.2
