Editing Process Items

The process table enables you to reorder and merge steps. You can also modify the configuration of an existing step in the process table.

• Reordering steps – In the process view, you can reorder steps using the Cut, Copy, and Paste tools.
– You can select multiple steps, but they must be consecutive in the process view.
– When pasting steps, the limits of where you can insert them are highlighted (in red) in the process table. This is dependent on the
interdependencies between steps.

• Merging steps – You can merge several holemaking steps together to optimize the toolpath.
– The resulting merge group generates a toolpath that machines all the holes included in all the merged steps.
– The steps must be consecutive in the process view and must be completely configured. The steps must also be in the same operation
and use the same tool.
• Editing existing steps – You can modify the configuration of an existing step in the process table.
– You can edit many items including tools, manufacturing parameters, geometry references, and NC sequence retract planes.
– Editing of steps applies to some NC sequences including facing, profiling, roughing, re-roughing, finishing, corner finishing, holemaking,
and trajectory milling.
– Editing of other step types such as volume milling opens the menu manager
