12.2.33. User Blocks

There is a layer operation type called "User blocks". Both for turning and milling.
This operation is for the user to be allowed to put in own blocks in SimCam documents. He or she might want to add code for a canned cycle not supported by SimCam, a comment, or extra blocks for movements. This can all be done with the User Blocks layer operation type.
When you open the parameters for a User Blocks layer, you will see the following dialog.
To create movement operations (linear fast and feed movements), enter the position values in the X, Y and Z fields, select the type of movement and click the Add button.
You can also add completely free blocks by typing them in the Free User Blocks text box. When postprocessing, SimCam will first add the movements (if there are any) and then the free blocks.
