Speed Up Your Programming Time – Stock Simulation

The integrated stock simulation allows the user to see the stock being removed and automatically checks for shaft and clamp/fixture collisions. The resulting stock model can be inspected by coloring the surface by tool number.  3+2 machining is supported and multiple toolpaths can be verified in a single operation.
