Edit | Join – Alphacam Previously, we mentioned that each arrow is a separate geometry. At this point, the outer contour still consists
[...]

Edit | Trim – Alphacam The second way to extract a fragment of geometry is to use the Trim function. We will discuss
[...]

Edit | Break – Alphacam Previously, we talked about geometry direction arrows and that one arrow represents one geometry. Our external contour consists
[...]

Start Point – Alphacam You know how to change the direction and side of machining, but you must know that the arrow also
[...]

Tool Directions – Ghost Tools At this moment, our drawing consists of several individual geometries. If we would like to machine, for example,
[...]

Edit | Offset – Alphacam We now draw a circle in the middle of a large circle with a radius of 15 smaller

Arc CENTER of Snap Another useful snap is the Arc CENTER of snap. With its help, you can easily find the center of
[...]

Find geometry – Alphacam Another useful option is the Find. Allows to find the indicated geometry in the geometry list. Suppose we want

INTERSECTION of Snap and Break geometry In this post I want to show two more Alphacam functions. Break geometry and snap INTERSECTION of.
