About Operations
An operation is a series of NC sequences performed at a particular work center and using a particular coordinate system for CL data output.
You have to set up an operation before you can start creating NC sequences.
An operation is an assembly (or workpiece) feature that contains the following information:
Work center to be used
Coordinate system for CL data output
Retract surface
Comments (optional)
A set of manufacturing parameters (optional)
FROM and HOME points (optional)
When the NC sequences and material removal features are created, they contain a reference to the current operation name. To perform material removal simulation, right-click the operation on the Model Tree and select NC Check from the shortcut menu.
Operation setting is modal, that is, once an operation is created, it stays current until another operation is created or activated.
