To Output a CL File
You can output the Cutter Location (CL) data for a single tool path or for a whole operation to a CL data file. To output an operation, select the operation name in the Model Tree window. To output a tool path, select the name of the corresponding tool path in the Model Tree window.
1. In the Model Tree window, select an operation or a tool path feature, right-click, and select Output Tool Pathfrom the pop-up menu. Or click Machining > Create CL File.
The system opens the Save As dialog box, with the default name of the output file shown in the New File text box.
2. To accept the default name, click OK. Or, type a different file name in the New File text box of the Save As dialog box and click OK.
The system generates the CL file and saves it to disk.
To output NC codes for a tool path or an operation, use the Create NC Code command. You can also save the tool path in either CL or MCD format directly from the PLAY PATH dialog box.
