Coordinate Rotation allows you to rotate your part program to another location or around a circumference. It is ideal for programming nested components, or when using a probe to set up castings or uneven components in a workholding device. Scaling is perfect for working with families of parts, where you need to increase or decrease (scale) the size of a toolpath or pattern.
- Integrates well with a spindle probe to speed workpiece setup for castings or uneven components
- Great for families of parts, where you need to scale the size of a toolpath or pattern
- Uses different scaling factor settings for each axis (X, Y, & Z) to accomplish complicated tasks
- Saves programming time when part shapes are repeated
