Creating Profile Rib Features

A profile rib feature is similar to an extruded protrusion, except that it requires an open section sketch. • Profile rib features require an open sketch. • You can edit the side that thickens. • You can flip to which side of the sketch you want to create the rib. …

Creating and Post-Processing CL Data Files

When toolpaths have been completed, you can use them to create ASCII format Cutter Location (CL) data files. You can then post-process CL data files into specific machine control data (MCD) files using a post-processor. Post-Processing • CL data files generated from toolpaths. • Post-process CL data files into machine-specific …
