Turning Tool Orientation Display



You can now dynamically rotate the tool on the graphics screen to see the tool orientation before generating the tool path.




Created with NX CAM 11.0.1



Dynamically rotating the tool allows you to see the tool and edit the orientation before generating the tool path. The tracking points display as a grid on the tool with the manipulator handle displayed at the active tracking point.
