Benefits and Description
Tool holders defined by HOLDER_DIAM and HOLDER_LENGTH are now degouged during computation of the tool path for roughing, reroughing ,and finishing. Additionally Pro/ENGINEER can report the minimum tool length to avoid collision. This allows the NC programmer to use the shortest tool possible to minimize vibration, particularly during roughing.
Holder degouging and reporting of the minimum tool length are controlled by the NC parameters TRIM_TOOLPATH_ON_HOLDER and CALCULATE_MIN_TOOL_LENGTH.
