TopSolid'Cam 7 Hint #134
In milling, as in turning, the user can make a contouring from a face to another one by using the "ALT" key. To do this, the user selects the first face, presses the "ALT" key, and then selects the last face. This also makes it possible to machine draft faces (by specifying the WCS to be used, as in the example) or to choose to machine only some faces of a part. All contouring options are then available.
TopSolid'Design 7 Hint #133
Save time on drafting by copying your dimension styles
TopSolid'Wood Hint #132
Schematic projection of components
TopSolid'Cam Hint #131
If the successive contouring mode does not suit you it is possible to easily change strategy with TopSolid’Cam 7. By creating a rectangular sketch, regardless of its dimensions or altitude and by choosing "end machining" it is possible to choose other strategies later on. In the attached video the initial strategy used has been changed to a spiral one.
