Chaining Tolerance

In previous versions of Mastercam for SolidWorks, you could only configure chaining tolerances—the maximum allowable distance between adjacent entities to be chained—from the Tolerance page in the System Configuration dialog box. In Mastercam for SolidWorks X7, you can also set this tolerance "on-the-fly" from the Chain Manager.

The tolerance value that you set here only affects the selected toolpath and is applied to all subsequent regenerations of that operation. Other toolpaths will continue to default to the system chaining tolerance set in the System Configuration dialog box.
