Midline Machining

Midline machining is to machine along the middle axis of the drawing,


         Command:

         MenuToolpath > Midline machining】                                     Toolpath  Bar


      

  

       Steps

1. Select the objects .

2. ClickMenuToolpath > Midline machining.

3. Set the parameters, Click OK button.


Parameters:

1)Midline Type:

2D machining: The depth is fixed.

3D engraving: the depth is automatically adjusted according to the shape of the object and the tool used. Maximum depth can be controlled

3D cone: the depth is also automatically adjusted according to the shape of the object and the tool.

2)Total depth: the machining depth.

3)Min midline length: to reduce the number of branching.

4)Multilayer: When the depth of the material is bigger than the tool height or when the material is of high rigidity (such as metal), the machining is done layer by layer on the material. you can set the depth per layer.

5)Sequence:

     

Near First: the nearest object to the tool will be machined first.

X/Y First: machine objects along X/Y axis direction first.

6)Reverse machining: to machine along the original Toolpath in the reverse direction again after first-time machining in order to make the surface of the material smooth.
