To Create a Punch NC Sequence by Referencing Punch Features
Each Punch or Notch feature has a specific tool that defines its shape. The system prompts you to enter the tool name and symmetry flag when you define the group for a Punch feature creation. This tool information, as well as the coordinate system included in the section sketch, is used in creating a Punch NC sequence. All Punch or Notch features included in the NC sequence must have the same tool information.
