VX CAM Tip: How to select profile curves for CAM containments



Cam containments can be open or closed but must be selected in a strict order to determine if machining is on the left or right side. Please use chain picking cautiously to define containments since chain pick inputs curves are not orderly. For closed profiles, pick the curves in a COUNTER CLOCKWISE direction to define material as being inside the profile (i.e., as you march along the profile curves, material is always on your left hand side).
