About User-Defined NC Sequences
NC sequences and material removal features can be grouped, the same as part features.
This functionality, in particular, allows you to create the NC sequences necessary to manufacture a group of features (design UDF) only once. You can then group these NC sequences (and material removal features, if desired), and place this manufacturing group in any other models containing the same reference features’ group.
If you do not reference a design UDF, the information about the reference part will be stored with the group. If you then place the group in another manufacturing model containing the same reference part, you will have an option to automatically resolve the placement references.
If you include a child NC sequence in a group (for example, local milling by previous sequence), make sure the parent NC sequence is also included. Otherwise, the system will not know which NC sequence to reference when making the group.
