To Create a Retract Motion
A Retract motion makes the tool go from the current location vertically up to the retract plane.
1. Choose Retract from the drop-down list in the Customize dialog box, and click Insert. The Retract dialog box opens.
2. In the Tip# box, select the tool tip that you want to use to reach the retract cutter position.
3. Edit the Tool Motion parameters, if desired, using the Feed, Spindle, and Coolant buttons in the top portion of the box.
4. If you want to define a 4- or 5-Axis NC sequence, you can specify the tool axis orientation using the Specify Axis button.
5. The Preview button allows you to preview the tool motion defined. Click OK if satisfied, Cancel—to quit creating the tool motion.
