The Global Rough/Re-rough toolpath allows roughing or re-roughing from a stock model (part or block).
This toolpath is optimized for reduced air cutting time with localized retracts and corner smoothing adapted for HSM (high speed machining) and also for automatic detection and machining of flat surfaces.
Global Re-rough automatically determines the areas where material has to be removed using its dynamic stock model management function.
Furthermore this toolpath is capable of machining large quantities of stock in a single pass due to large stepovers capabilities (up to 95% of cutter diameter) and high delta-Z's. Maximum remaining cusp height when machining a given level can also be controlled.
This highly optimized machining toolpath enables significant productivity gains to be made.
