Parameter Short Names

Each parameter is assigned a unique variable – a short parameter name. These names are used when creating parameter relations. For example, the value of a parameter, say Horiz. Step, could be the relation0.05*tldi (where tldi is the parameter short name for tool diameter Examples of Short Names appearing in the Parameter Table: To display the …

Parameter Relations: Examples

To show various examples of how to use relations, the Tool Trajectory parameters for a certain procedure are as shown below. Some of these parameters were defined using relations. To display the relation, hold the cursor over the parameter value marked with a colored f; a tooltip is displayed containing the …
