To Change the Step Size
The Step Size option on the NC DISP menu allows you to control the frequency of successive tool displays.
When you choose Step Size, you will have two options:
Enter—Enter the step size. If step size is smaller that a tool motion, the intermediate positions in a CL file line will be displayed. If step size is large, some positions at the end of a CL line will not be shown until the total distance the tool travels exceeds the step size.
Automatic—The step size will be calculated automatically to produce the fastest display. This is the default.
* The Step size functionality works differently for Sheet Metal manufacturing operations. Therefore, if the NC Check process is started from Tools > CL Data, you must specify the filename before entering step size, so that the system can present the proper interface depending on the NC sequence type.
