The NC programmer selects the faces of the workpiece that will be machined, and the CAD software automatically extends the elec- trode faces as needed, selecting the blank and holder from a library. The module is suitable for solid and face models. The module also calculates the minimal rib distance, the blank's excess and the C-angle offset. | Open Mind Technologies USA Inc. | 888-516-1232 |
