This class will venture into some of the more advanced editing tools that are offered within PowerMill software. The dynamic machine control and editing within a region will be the topics of discussion. We will demonstrate live these editing tools.
- Learn how to run a full machine simulator and detect collisions or near collisions
- Learn how to find potential problematic areas during the simulation and correct them before sending the file to the machine
- Gain a basic overview of PowerMill software's different types of tool axis options for simultaneous programming
- Learn how to manipulate specific regions of a toolpath and override the behavior of the machine tool
