New Electrode Preferences

September2013ToolingTips2New electrode preferences in Version 11 provide much more control over the electrode UCS.  The point for the electrode UCS can be set at one of several automatic points, which greatly reduces mouse clicks.  The direction of the electrode UCS is also a choice, allowing either X or Y to be aligned with the coordinate system of the project.  Besides being an overall preference setting, these options can be adjusted for each electrode if need be.  What’s more, an entirely new coordinate system called NC UCS is an option.  This allows the electrode designer to set one origin point for the burn location, but an entirely different origin for machining purposes.
