Stepover Cleanup for Follow Periphery in Area Milling



You can now remove large scallops that sometimes remain where corners occur in the tool path and at the center of the Follow Periphery cut pattern.




Created with NX CAM 11.0.0



The Stepover Cleanup option is new. It is available in the Area Mill Drive Method when using Follow Periphery Cut Pattern and may be used when Stepover Applied is set to On Plane or On Part.
