CAUTION
Whether to perform contour milling on an outer or inner
surface depends on the specified cutting position (CP) as
viewed in the direction in which the definitions of elements
for the part figure advance.
Outer surface contour milling:
Left–hand side as viewed in the direction in which the
definitions of elements advance
Inner surface contour millimg:
Right–hand side as viewed in the direction in which the
definitions of elements advance
When cutting is performed on the element line,
differentiating between outer surface contour milling and
inner surface contour milling is unnecessary.
NOTE
Approach/escape type
The approach type and escape type for milling can be
selected from the following four patterns:
1) Direct approach (escape)
2) Tangent approach (escape)
3) Normal approach (escape)
4) Circular approach (escape)
When cutting is performed on an element, the system does
not prompt the user to enter the approach and escape
types.
Selection of approach/escape type is not valid for 5700
series of 16T CAP II.
