|In addition to the various export paths to machines and exchange formats, the export menu has Export aids. Here there are a selection for repeat milling, 3D viewing, examination, printing etc.|
Tool edit export:
The export data/data of a milling file are examined and possible incorporated tools are listed. The tool data can be edited and saved.
Save tool list:
Help for the production of a work sheet. Saves the data of the export (file name, dimensions, tools etc..) in an ASCII file (.txt).
Sort the milling sequence of the tool object according to various criteria. Sorting can be inverted usingReverse sequence.
Output from mark:
Input of a start point for repeat (post-) processing.
|From cursor contour/position:||Using the cursor select a start contour or start position.|
|+/- Tool object/Contour/ Position/Milling path:||Relocate the start position forward/backwards.|
|Tool object:||Select and export only one individual tool data set.|
Some machines react unfavourably to high resolution milling data (milling supporting points are so dense that the transmission or precalculation times of the processing time is exceeded). The processing is jerky. For these machines the supporting point density can be reduced according to an adjustable limiting value. Please note that, with this, the accuracy of the milling data is changed. Removal of supporting points takes place in the range 0.001 .. 10 mm. Here, the shape of the milling path is, as far as possible, unaltered.
Smooth milling paths:
Approximate (smooth) the milling data in the range 0.001 .. 10 mm. The repeated smoothing of the milling data produces no advantages.
The current drawing is printed out on a standard printer.
|Match to page:||The graphic is matched to the sheet size.|
|Fill contours:||All closed contours are as far as possible filled in black/white.|
|Paper margin and offset:||Additional margin around the graphic.|
|With frame:||Print with graphic frame.|
|With dimensions:||Print dimensions of the graphic frame.|
|Upright format:||Select portrait/landscape.|
Indication for the testing of the vector and tool data. The display can be advanced in steps using and page-by-page using
The (3D-) data are shown in perspective. With setting in plan view (all angles = 0) the 3D paths are shown in grey- (colour-) steps. PosA: colour setting for emersed movements. With input PosA without colour the perspective indication takes place with high level marking.
The milling paths are displayed as volume aspect of the processed workpiece. For this a cuboid is processed, as if it has been milled. Valid tools in the data set are required for this display.
|Limits:||Workpiece: the operating limits are the operating frame and the milling paths. Milling path: the display limits are determined by the milling paths.|
|Resolution:||Setting very fine to very coarse. Very fine requires long calculation times, very coarse creates a coarsely gridded aspect.|
|Creation:||The aspect is calculated.|
Setting of the volume view:
|Palette selection:||Selection of the grey shades/colour palette.|
|Graphic:||Graphic setting for the grey shades/colour representation.|
|Posn height:||Shows the 3D relief position and gradient angle at the cursor position. RX, RY, RZ: relief position in mm. AngZX, AngZY: gradient in degrees at the relief position for the directions Z-X (horizontal) and Z-Y (vertical).|
|Height line:||The height line is shown from a horizontal section through the relief. The intersection line is positioned in the Y – direction using the cursor.|
|Standard/Zoom Projection:||3D aspect via grid, vectors, points or surfaces. The viewing direction can be set in 5° steps. With PosA you set the line presentation colours. Inputting PosA without colour the perspective display takes place with adjustable height level marking.|
|Save relief:||Save the volume aspect as relief.|
|Render:||Calculate the picture of the graphics in the aspect angle and with defined illumination source (render).|
|Aspect angle:||Adjust aspect angle.|
|Light angle:||Angle and separation of the illumination source.|
|Resolution:||Picture resolution marginal .. high.|
|Contrast:||Grey grading marginal .. very intense.|
|Graphics:||View calculated picture.|
|Save relief:||Save picture as relief.|
|BMP picture:||Save the picture in a BMP file.|
Help for the production of a work sheet. The current graphic is saved in a picture file.
Setting of working area/Graphics area:
limits of the graphics detail. With the working area setting only the tool within the working limits is saved. Note: with zoom only the visible area can be saved. With Graphics area setting the complete area planned for the graphics is saved.
