## Tool Directions – Ghost Tools – Alphacam #12

Tool Directions – Ghost Tools YouTube: https://youtu.be/0tqN1QMuFw4 At this moment, our drawing consists of several individual geometries. If we would like to machine, for example, an external shape, it would be difficult because we do not really have a geometry that completely represents the outer contour of the part. But how do you check it?…

## Edit | Offset – Alphacam #11

Edit | Offset – Alphacam YouTube: https://youtu.be/hS612ZeVC_0 We now draw a circle in the middle of a large circle with a radius of 15 smaller than this circle. We could use the Arc CENTER of snap, but there is an opportunity to show the Offset function. Choose Edit | Offset. The following window will appear….

## Arc CENTER of Snap – Alphacam #10

Arc CENTER of Snap YouTube: https://youtu.be/MtHJ4HW3T6E Another useful snap is the Arc CENTER of snap. With its help, you can easily find the center of the selected circle. We now draw circles with a diameter of 15 in centers of circles with a diameter of 30. Choose Geometry | Circle | Center + Diameter, enter…

## Find geometry – Alphacam #9

Find geometry – Alphacam YouTube: https://youtu.be/of5PrgifkrA Another useful option is the Find. Allows to find the indicated geometry in the geometry list. Suppose we want to expire two short lines, but we do not want to delete them. In the Project Manager, go to the Layers tab. At the top is the Find button hidden…

## TANGENT to Snap – Alphacam #8

TANGENT to Snap YouTube: https://youtu.be/icV4YNQymc8 Now we will practice the TANGENT to snap. In the centers of the lines that we drew previously, draw circles with a diameter of 30. Choose Geometry | Line and select the TANGENT to snap (6 from the left). Point to the smaller circle on the left, anywhere above the…

## QUADRANT point Snap – Alphacam #7

QUADRANT point Snap YouTube: https://youtu.be/LCRVdM2SFPc Another snap worth discussing in the initial stage of learning Alphacam is the QUADRANT point. We draw lines (the ones we previously deleted) using this snap. Choose Geometry | Line and the beginning of the line “catch” in the center of the left, shorter side of the rectangle. Use the…

## Delete geometry – Alphacam #6

Delete command YouTube: https://youtu.be/IwSuIE9dED8 In the previous post I mentioned how to check if the geometry division worked correctly. For this purpose, we used the Edit | Delete command. Of course, the use of this command is different, as the name implies is used to delete geometry (or toolpaths). Choose Edit | Delete. Now on…
