To Save CL Data in a File
When you display the tool motion for a tool path or operation, you can save the current CL data in a CL file or an MCD file directly from the PLAY PATH dialog box:
1. On the top menu bar of the PLAY PATH dialog box, click File.
2. Click one of the following options:
Save—Output CL data to a CL file, with the name corresponding to the name of the Tool Path feature.
Save As—Output CL data to a CL file with a different name. Type the new name in the browser window.
Save As MCD—Postprocess CL data and output it as an MCD file. The Post Processor Options window opens. Select the desired options and click Output.
