Reduce transition motions and machining time for drill operations
You can now optimize new drilling operations and combine tool paths across multiple features and workpieces to minimize transition motions and machining time within a program.
Created with NX CAM 9.0.3
The Optimize option can rearrange the order of operations that use the same tool to prevent unnecessary tool changes and create a new object in the Program Order View containing combined tool paths to minimize transition motions and machining time.
To use this self-demo, save the attached part files locally and follow the instructions in the pdf document.
