To Create a Reposition Pad
1. Select the Wrkcell tabbed page from the SMT MFG MACHINING dialog box.
2. Click Zones > Pad > Create Pad. The REPOSITION PAD dialog box opens.
3. Click Sketch to define a new pad or Retrieve to retrieve an existing pad.
4. If you want to modify the dimensions of the pad, click Mod Dim. The system displays the pad dimensions. Select the dimension you want to modify. Type the new value and click Done Sel.
5. You can position a pad using the following options:
X Offset—Enter a value for the x offset from Machine Csys. Press ENTER.
Y Offset—Enter a value for the y offset. Press ENTER.
Angle—Enter the angle of rotation of the pad about the anchor point. Press ENTER.
Drag—Place the pad using the mouse buttons as follows:
LEFT—Finalizes the placement of the pad.
MIDDLE—Pauses. The LinearIncr and AngularIncr options change drag increments. The effect is similar to the grid snap in Sketcher (e.g., you might want to enter a rotational increment of 90). A drag increment of 0, at any point, is equivalent to "grid snap off." Click Done to continue the placement process. To bring the pad back to the Machine Csys location, click Quit.
RIGHT—Switches between dragging and rotating the pad.
6. Click Done.
