Visible Stock Size

Rather than use the stock function for each part, most users will set the general preference for Recalculate Part Size and let Cimatron automatically measure part sizes at every save.  Version 14 actually saves two automatic stock sizes for each part, one in the part units and another in the alternate unit. 

In addition, checking the option for Visible Part Size – Manual allows you to manually type in a value for the Visible Stock Size attribute; this value will not be overwritten when the part is saved again.  This is very useful for standard parts or any time you want a specific size called out in the Bill of Materials.
