Punch Specific Parameters
The PP_SCAN_TYPE parameter defines how the system scans the punch instances:
TYPE_1 (the default)—Increment the y coordinate and goes back and forth in the x direction.
TYPE_SPIRAL—Clockwise, starts from the instance nearest to the coordinate system.
TYPE_ONE_DIR—Increment the x coordinate and decrements the y.
The scan algorithm applies to the whole workpiece. It does not matter if the punch instances belong to the same reference part or to different ones.
1. TYPE_1
The PP_TOOL_ORIENT parameter defines the angular orientation of the punch tool when creating a Punch NC sequence referencing datum points. The default value is 0.
