SLANTED SURFACE MACHINING
ANIMATED SIMULATION (MENU NO. 6)
In animated simulation, figures for slanted surface machining can be
drawn according to NC data saved in NC memory, as follows:
D Isometric tool path drawing
The actual tool path is plotted in the workpiece coordinate system.
D Animated simulation in the YZ plane (side view)
The projection of a tool used for slanted surface machining is drawn
in the plane in which the workpiece exists as viewed in the positive
direction of the X–axis of the workpiece coordinate system. The tool
figure projection is represented with a filled true circle rather than a
For slanted surface machining, it is impossible to use
animated simulation function B, which is intended to draw
side and front views simultaneously.
