About Tool Path Duplication
You can duplicate a tool path by translating and rotating a copy of a feature’s tool path. The duplicate tool paths are placed at constant or variable intervals. Each duplicate tool path appears on the Model Tree as its own feature or as a child of a duplicate header feature. With duplicate tool paths, you can perform the following operations:
Make changes to them, such as change the retract offset to avoid a collision
Postprocess them to finalize the machining order
You can view each duplicate tool path individually or as a set. The tool and the path it follows are displayed in the CL player tool with the tool path location and tool orientation. It is also displayed as a cutter location file
