Adaptive Clearing Shallow Areas
HSMWorks 2010 introduces support for shallow area machining in Adaptive Clearing.
Shallow area machining detects shallow areas on the model and inserts additional stepdowns to provide a better finish of the shallow area.
Shallow Area parameters
When enabled, the shallow area machining is controlled by two parameters:
Minimum Shallow Stepdown
This parameter controls the minimum allowed stepdown between the extra Z-levels. This parameter takes precedence over the maximum shallow stepover.
Maximum Shallow Stepover
This parameter controls the stepover used to detect areas where extra Z-levels should be inserted. If the normal stepdown results in a stepover of more than this value extra levels will be inserted until the stepover or the minimum stepdown is reached.
