Divide cut region using a line



You can now specify the orientation of the plane along which the divide line projects when dividing a cut region in Area Milling operations. This gives you more control over dividing the cut region.





Created with NX CAM 9.0.3



You may define a sectioning plane through the divide line normal to the tool axis or define the sectioning plane by specifying an angle relative to the tool axis.


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