Parameters, G code program
Name of the program to be generated
Reference tool Tool, which is used in the "solid machining" machining step. This is
used to determine the plunge position.
Reference point Z
Depth with reference to Z0 (inc.)
Maximum plane infeed
Maximum plane infeed as a percentage of the milling cutter diameter
Finishing allowance, plane
Depth finishing allowance - (only for predrilling)
Lift mode before new infeed
If the machining operation requires several points of insertion, the retraction height can
To retraction plane
Z0 + safety clearance
When making the transition to the next insertion point, the tool returns to this height. If
there are no elements larger than Z0 in the pocket area, "Z0 + safety clearance" can be
selected as the lift mode.
