3-Axis Trajectory Milling Multi-Step and Multi-Pass Parameters

There are a number of parameters that enable you to create multi-step and multi-pass 3-axis trajectory milling sequences.
Multi-Step Configuration
• NUMBER_CUTS
• STEP_DEPTH
• Final pass along specified trajectory
• Start Height
• Height
Multi-Pass Configuration
• NUM_PROF_PASSES
• PROF_INCREMENT
• Final pass along specified trajectory
Multi-Step Configuration

• You can create multi-step trajectory milling by specifying the desired STEP_DEPTH and NUMBER_CUTS.
• The last pass coincides with the specified trajectory.
• Start Height – You can use Start Height to specify an alternative start height to the top of the workpiece.
• Height – You can use Height to specify an alternative final height of the toolpath.
Multi-Pass Configuration
• You can perform multi-pass trajectory milling (a succession of trajectory passes with horizontal offset) by using the NUM_PROF_PASSES and PROF_INCREMENT parameters.
• The last pass coincides with the specified trajectory
