Using Turning Workpiece Models

It is important to understand how workpiece models are used in manufacturing assemblies. Workpieces represent unmachined stock material, for example: • Stock Billets • Castings Workpiece Features: • Enable machining simulation of workpiece. • As-machined versions. • No machining outside workpiece boundaries. • Workpiece display. Workpiece Options: • Create an …

Understanding Turning Material Removal

A material removal feature can be generated following each NC step. The purpose of this feature is to reshape the workpiece so the part looks just as it will during the actual machining process at the completion of that NC step. Figure 1 – Model without a Material Removal Feature …
