## Alphacam Basics – Geometry to construction – lesson 20

How to change Alphacam ‘green’ geometry to construction – way 1 The first way to change the ‘standard’ geometry to construction geometry is moving geometry from Geometry layer to Construction layer using drag and drop method. This is very easy when we have small amount of geometries. When we have complex drawing with many geometries…

## Alphacam Basics – Construction geometry – lesson 19

Construction geometry in Alphacam This command allows us to create auxiliary geometries. This geometries can be created using all of the same tools located in the Geometry Tab and you can edit it using options from the Edit Tab but construction geometry can not be machined. Now, when this option is active, all drawn geometries…

## Alphacam Basics – Enclosing rectangle – lesson 18

Alphacam Enclosing Rectangle Enclosing Rectangle is another option from Special Geometries. Create any geometry or open the file from the previous lesson. Now select the Enclosing Rectangle and in command line select All. This will select all geometry in the workspace. Accept this by clicking RMB. We received a rectangle enclosing whole geometry. Please see…

## Alphacam Basics – Equi Spaced holes – lesson 17

Equi-spaced Holes Along Curve in Alphacam Next option in Special Geometries in Alphacam is Equi-Spaced Holes Along Curve. To activate this option you have to draw some geometry. Let’s draw an involute curve. Now Equi-Spaced Holes Along Curve is active and we can choose this function. We could specify Number of Holes or Approx Interval…

## Alphacam Basics – Ellipse – lesson 10

Ellipse in Alphacam Using Special Geometries we can easily draw an ellipse. After selecting this option window will appear. Width and height parameters: Width is a value of the ellipse in X axis, Height is a value of the ellipse in Y axis. Number of quadrants (1 – 4):   Number of Arcs per Quadrant – you can specify how many Arcs are used for each quadrant, the default is four, but this can be changed to any amount you would like to…
