The flexible viewing options allow some
unique display abilities. In the screen shot at right, the
graphics view was split into four view ports. Each view port
has a different image from the same file loaded as follows:
Top Left: A zoomed in view of a small area of
the semi-finish pass with the backplot of the semi-finish displayed on
Top Right: The roughing pass of the entire
Bottom left: The same zoomed area of the part
with the entire semi-roughing pass displayed to provide perspective of
Bottom right: The finish pass of the entire
In just in minutes, MCU easily shows detail that would
otherwise require a microscope. The model below is a small section of a 16 MB finish
pass for a bottle mold. (The file contained over a million lines of
The lighting control provides dynamic
light position and intensity which guarantees that you see all the
detail available in a model.
The two pictures above are of exactly the same
model. The only difference is the position and intensity of the
lighting. This models represents a small area of a bottle mold,
approximately = 0.1" x 0.1" (2.5mmx2.5mm)
With just a click on the surface, MCU highlights the
area (yellow swatch) and instantly provides the detailed information,
for instance, in the pick above:
The pick area was cut by line #141055 which was a G1 motion .015"
It was machined by Tool #4 at a feed of 35"/min with
a speed of 10000 rpm.
Tool #4 is a .125" spherical end mill.
All of this information and much more is available
just by clicking on the model. If desired, the backplot of
the toolpath may be viewed superimposed on the model.
