SmoothFlow is a HSM cycle that tries to keep the tool uniformly engaged in material and retract as few times as possible. There are two flavors: a unidirectional (climb, conventional) version and a zigzag one.
Like the high speed offset 2D cut operation, the rough offset 2D cut is used for 2D area clearance of explicitly defined rough stock. The tool path is first calculated and then projected onto the CAM component geometry.
The rough plunge cut operation is a method used to rough out large parts. These can include deep cores and cavities, high shoulder slots and straight or sloped walls. Those requiring long tools will benefit from this operation.
The 5 axis plane cut creates a cutting pattern based on parallel cuts at a user specified angle with respect to the frames X axis. This cutting pattern can be used to control the tool tip or the contact location of the tool on the part.
