Roughing capabilities comprise a large variety of cutting techniques for high volume removal of material. These manufacturing practices include strategies for high speed roughing and the achievement of semi-finishing or finishing qualities through proper built-in engage/retract motions. Turn Roughing relies on the system’s automatic remaining material detection capability.
Access the Roughing Dialog by:
pushing the Create Operation Icon or
selecting Insert → Operation from the main menu bar or
using MB3 on the geometry (geometry view in the Operation Navigator) for which you would like to create an operation and choose Insert → Operation
The first step in generating a roughing operation is to select a roughing strategy.
