Control drilling depths and rough out non-standard holes faster with intelligent drilling
You can now apply Model Depth to tapered or non-cylindrical holes. By specifying Model Depth as the machining area and by specifying a Bottom Stock, the operation will drill only as deep into the taper as it is safe to do so without gouging the part.You can also specify whether to use the tool tip or tool shoulder as the contact point when drilling blind holes.
Created with NX CAM 9.0.2
Drilling as deeply as it is safe to do so by controlling bottom stock and tool contact point.
To use this self-demo, save the attached part files locally and follow the instructions in the pdf document.
