Alphacam Basics – Z levels in first machining – lesson 15
Alphacam Rough or Finish – Contour machining in Alphacam
In this lesson we will discuss Z levels form Levels and Cuts Tab from Rough or Finish operation.
This operation will allws us to machine Alphacam geometries eg. Lines or rectangles…
This produce tool path along the contour.
Let’s check the Z Levels from Levels and Cuts Tab
Safe Rapid Level
The Z level that the tool can safely traverse the machining area at a rapid speed.
Rapid Down To
The Z level that the tool can move down to at a rapid speed.
The Z level of the top of the material to be machined.
The Z level at which the tool will make its final pass.
In the video you will get more information.
