Is there any way to create toolpath for nested parts any faster than select each one and create the operations for each parts ?
I mean i know the trick where you can copy and paste operations and just change the faces and the restriction lines from one part to the next but other than that is there any other way to create the tool path any quicker? There isnt any way to actually copy, rotate and or mirror actual toolpaths is there?

Krisz, have you tried the 'Multiply Group' operation(s) which is found under 'Rest milling'?

It is a bit sort of hidden away, and it doesn't really make sense to be under the 'Rest Machining' strategy list, but then again it wouldn't be at home under any of the other headings.

It's a really nice feature though if you are just starting to explore it. You can optimise the tool changes so that if you create your machining that has several operations (and tools) for the first component, and then add a 'Multiply Group' operation, you can adjust the tool change sequence using 'Strategy' - 'Machining sequence' - 'By blocks' or 'By operation'.
Give it a try, it's really neat smile.gif

Hehe thanks Dave it is indeed a really nice feature, and you are right it is hidden in there but there really isnt any good place for it either.

Might there be a tutorial for multiply group?

quick question.

If you are working on a multi opp program, do you create a multiply group for each opp, or drop all opps into a single multiply group?

I think its the first, but wanted to verify.

Hi David, if all ops are using the same positions then you can use one multiply group for all the ops.
To optimise the toolchanging you should select 'By operations' under Machining sequence.
This is a very powerful function.......
