During simulation, the current program is calculated in its entirety and the result displayed in graphic form. The result of programming is verified without traversing the machine axes. Incorrectly programmed machining steps are detected at an early stage and incorrect machining on the workpiece prevented. The simulation represented on the screen uses the correct workpiece and tool proportions. The blank dimensions that are entered in the program editor are used for the workpiece.
The 3-D simulation enables the operator to easily check whether any errors have occurred during programming. Thanks to the different-colored lines, it is easy to track the exact movements of the tool and to verify the chosen milling strategies. Green milling paths represent feed movements, and red paths rapid traverse movements. This makes it easy to monitor any contour damage that may occur.
