Automatic Curve Offset and Extension

Everyone could use a Cookie once in a while. In Cimatron, a Cookie is an automatic curve offset and extension. Cookies are especially useful in die design and strip development, because they quickly automate the overlap of punch areas.  But the Cookie function can also be found under the Curves menu, and has many other applications outside of die design; for example clearing pocket corners or creating contours for Wire EDM. Cookies can either extend an entire edge or just act in selected corners. Several options in the Cookie function provide complete control over every aspect of the shape and offset distance.
