Benefits and Description
Using the Process Manager for these operations, you can:
- Define steps using the step-editing dashboard in the Process Manager.
- Capture step definitions in XML-based manufacturing templates for data reuse.
- Use steps as part of a manufacturing annotation feature for process extraction.
- Create a new step from a manufacturing template including automatic assignment of references based on type and name if the config.pro option MFG_AUTO_REF_MFG_TEMPLATE is set to YES.
These operations also apply to all the other NC sequence types already supported by the Process Manager, including the new corner machining and 3-axis trajectory.
