Benefits and Description
There are two new NC Steps for specialized toolpaths. The references for Chamfer Milling are chamfer-like surfaces which are planar with an inclination relative to the Z-axis. The available tools are Chamfering, Drilling, Basic Drill, Spot Drill or Countersink. The tool angle should match the surfaces angle to enable the toolpath generation. For Round Milling the references should be round-like surfaces such as cylinders, toroidal, and fillet surfaces. The tool available is corner rounding with the same radius as the surface.
