Creating a 6-sided blank with constant casting stock
I work with a permanent fixture and have adjusted my database.cnf file accordingly. When using trim steels, only certain areas are milled. Do I have to scan the entire blank, even including areas that are not machined?
Tebis allows you to create a blank with constant stock allowance from six directions. You scan only the areas that are to be milled but still create a blank for the entire component.
Here's how you do it
Select the NCBASE/BLANK function.
Select the "6 side offset" option. Select the mesh and the CAD data then specify the desired stock allowance.
If necessary, use the DESIGN/ANALYZE/COMPARE function to check the distances between the CAD data and the blank.
For more information on creating blanks, open the context-sensitive help in the NCBASE/BLANK function.
