ANIMATED SIMULATION FUNCTION B
1. ANIMATED SIMULATION
By setting appropriate value in the parameter “DRAWING TYPE C =”,
which is included in the “PARAMETER SET”window of the animated
simulation, the simulation picture can be selected as follows.
C=1: Draw X–Z side view on left side and X–C front view on right side
of the screen
=0: Draw X–Z side view on full screen
Following soft–keys are available for animated simulation.
Press to start animated simulation.
Press to restore blank workpiece figure on the screen.
press to set various parameters relating to the animated simulation.
Press to increase or reduce the size of the simulation picture on the screen.
This soft–key is not valid and not shown on the screen when simulation
views of both side view and front view are displayed on the screen.
Also, because this soft–key is valid only before the “CHECK START”
soft–key is pressed and it disappears from the screen when “CHECK
START” is pressed, this soft–key must be operated before pressing
“CHECK START” key if magnification or reduction is required.
Each time this key is pressed, the tool path tracing mode alternates
between ON and OFF.
When ON, tool path traces are drawn on both side view and front view of
the simulation. Tool path tracing mode can be alternated during the
While in the interference check mode, the tool path traces are not drawn.
Each time this key is pressed, the interference check mode alternates
between ON and OFF. This soft–key disappears when bit 5 of the system
parameter No. 701 is ON(disable interference check).
When the interference check mode is switched ON, tool path tracing mode
is forced to be OFF.
The interference check mode can be changed only before the “CHECK
START”soft–key is pressed. After the key is pressed, pressing
“INTERFERENCE” soft–key does not change the state of the
interference check mode.
