Streamline Design with Electrode Blank

Nov 2015 tip 3The Electrode Blank function provides some powerful and unique functionality that streamlines the electrode design process. It can perform look-ahead calculations based on features that appear further downstream in the part history tree.  The Re-center and Re-fit options allow you to adjust the blank location and size while accounting for any extra geometry you may have created for clearance and shape extensions.  A newly-added option is Re-fit Height, which can determine the new top Z level for the electrode based on the finished electrode shape.
