Minimum cut length for Area Milling



You can now specify a minimum cut length for steep cutting in Area Milling operations. This allows you to remove very short cutting segments from the tool path.





Created with NX CAM 9.0.3



The new Minimum Cut Length option eliminates tool path segments shorter than the specified value.


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