Benefits and Description

A performing, slope-based tool path simplifies the finishing of cornerx and valleys in parts. With Corner Finishing tool path, the system computes corner areas that cannot be reached by a reference tool and a stock allowance. You can use slope-based strategies to finish these detected surface areas. Additionally, you can control the size of the remaining area by minimum and maximum parameter for the remaining area depth, by a maximum corner-angle parameter, and surface extension parameter as defined by an offset value.
