Part Layout gibbscam

The Part Layout defines the tombstone, the multiple parts on it and how tools should move from part to part. The Standard tab is used to define a situation where the same setup is used on all sides of the tombstone. The Custom Sides tab is used when multiple types of parts or part conditions are set up. In a situation where the front and back of parts on different sides of the tombstone, the Standard or Custom Sides tab would be used. If the layout of the parts is identical on each side, (e.g. 3 rows and 2 columns of parts, in the same relative positions) then the standard tab is the best choice as it is simpler to use. A filter would be used to separate the machining processes, depending on the side of the tombstone. Using the Custom Sides tab should probably be limited to situations where the setups are actually different
