Linking associativity

You can use associative points to program your linking moves for most 2D toolpaths. These new features are located on the Linking Parameters page.

For example, if the top of a feature should be cleared by a certain amount, you can enter a Clearance amount, select Associative, and then pick a point on the feature in the graphics window. The Clearance plane will always be the specified incremental value above the point, even if the feature is moved.

The following toolpaths do not use the associative points:

  • Point
  • Engrave
  • All Wireframe toolpaths (Ruled, Lofted, Revolved, Coons patch, Swept)
