Tool Path Replay and Simulation

The tasks for using capabilities such as tool path verification and material removal simulation are documented in the NC Manufacturing Infrastructure User's Guide.

For a Part Operation originating from V4 NC Mill or NC Lathe, Replay and Simulation is only available whenever a successful APT association has been done.

Replay Tool Path: Select the Tool Path Replay icon then specify the display options for an animated tool path display of the manufacturing program of machining operation.

Simulate Material Removal (P2 functionality): Select the desired icon in the Tool Path Replay dialog box to run a material removal simulation either in Photo or Video mode.
