Checking Cut COM in NC Machining


New member
I have a part with a number of cutting operations. ON a few of the finishing ops we turn the cut com on and off at the beginning and end of each operation respectively. I need to check several of these parts programmed by others. Is there an easy place or way to be able to look quickly and double check that each cut com has been turned on and off where appropriate? Currently, I have to open each operation and look at the approach macro and then the retract macro to check, which is very time consuming. Thanks for any help!
