 Toolpath Time
26-10-2004 09:20 . am | View his/her posts only
When I go to output and inquire a toolpath there is a time value at the bottom of the information box. This toolpath shows 11.72. Is this 11 min. 72 sec.? Will we ever be able to inquire an accurate cut time on the entire Cam plan without adding them all up individually? I have attached a picture for further detail of my question.

I believe the dot "." is used for decimal values in engineering and math in majority of the world. So 11.72 min = 11 + 72/100 min = 11 min 43.2 sec where the dot is used as decimal value separtor again (meaning at last): 11 min 43 sec and 2/10. My personal oppinion 11.72 min is OK.

Regarding second question (Will we ever be able to inquire an accurate cut time on the entire Cam plan without adding them all up individually?) I asked gentlemen that are in charge with this and I will keep you informed about it.

Thanks for the leason on what a decimal is used for. The lack of units on the value was throwing me. Thanks for clearing that up.

I still try to be serious. So I hope to "hurt" you back without losing my professional aura

I spoke with our guys in charge for statistics dumping and they will try to squeeze a project that will aggregate some statistics for entirely process in version 11. Now I dont know if will be there but lets hope will be solved.

Hi

Wouldn't it be better to have the function now instead of waiting for v11?
