Creating New Items in the Process Manager

You can insert and configure many different types of items in the process table, including operations, workcells, fixtures, and NC sequences (steps).

Creating New Items in the Process Manager Tools
• Inserting Items – In the process view, you can insert and configure operations and fixtures. In the resources view, you can insert and configure workcells.
• Inserting NC Steps – In the process view, you can insert and configure many different types of NC steps, including:
– Facing and Profiling – You can create and configure facing and profiling steps.
– Roughing and Re-roughing – You can create and configure roughing and re-roughing steps.
– Finishing and Corner Finishing – You can create and configure finishing and corner finishing steps.
– Holemaking – You can create and configure any type of holemaking step, including standard drilling, center drilling, and countersink drilling.
– Trajectory milling – You can create and configure 3-axis trajectory milling steps and 2-axis curve trajectory milling steps.
• Editing Steps – You can directly configure all of the previously mentioned steps directly within the process table.
– Tools enable you to specify cutting tools, edit manufacturing parameters, and specify step reference geometry such as holes to drill or surfaces to machine.
– You can also review the resulting toolpath and compute step time.
• Other Milling Steps – You can also insert other milling steps in the process table including volume milling and surface milling.
– However, you cannot directly configure these steps within the process table. Editing of these steps invokes the menu manager, enabling you to complete the step configuration using normal menu manager selections.
