To Specify Depth
Depending on the cut motion type, you have to determine:
For Upto Depth motion—the depth of the last slice.
For From-To Depth motion: From Depth—the depth of the first slice, To Depth—the depth of the last slice.
For Slice/Slice motion—individual depth of each slice.
The following options are available for specifying slice depth:
Specify Plane—Select a planar surface or datum plane parallel to the retract plane. You will also have an option to make a datum plane "on the fly".
Z Depth—Enter depth as a Z-axis coordinate with respect to the NC Sequence coordinate system.
The Play Cut option allows you to display the cut motion as it is currently defined. You can then specify different depth value(s) if desired.
