Can anyone tell me how to view the simulation of all tool paths in a job. I want to view the entire job and see what happens to the tool on completion of each process. I have a Multicam machine that has been adapted to machine aluminum extrusion. I have clamps that run in the "Y" axis and they are about 80mm above the job. For any particular extrusion I have about 20 sections running across the bed and they are all machined the same,
therefore if I drill 20 holes in the "y" axis and end the process at the 20th hole and commence a new process 400mm or so further down in the "X" axis with another 20 holes running back. Will the tool?
1. Lift up to the rapid top before proceeding to the next process (It shows this in the drawing if configured this way, that is why i would like to see a simulation of sequential processes)
2. Proceed to the next process in the sequence at Clear "Z" plane given there was no tool change necessary. ( I understand that if a tool change was required it would of course lift all the way up and change before commencing the next process but given no change necessary does the program shortcut this lift to rapid "Z")
The multicam is not represented in the machine set up so what would I select in the machine setup? (its an
