The selection of the CL-data commands from the graphical view


All CLDATA commands can be divided in two groups: the commands that move the tool and commands that do not. To the first group belong commands like <GOTO>, <CIRCLE>, <MULTIGOTO>, <MULTIARC>, <PHYSICGOTO>, <GOHOME>. These and other motion commands define the tool toolpath curve.

If a tool path is visible (the f_clip0541 button on the visibility panel is checked), then the active (i.e. selected) tree node with all its sub nodes is displayed in the view. Activating another node in the tree changes the view to display the appropriate toolpath fragment.

One can walk through the tree directly in the graphical view.

Click the f_clip0516 button before the selection of the required tool path fragment. The fragments inside or the selected node is highlighted then the mouse is moved. It is necessary to click the left mouse button on the highlighted object to select it. The tool path outside of the selected node is shown transparently and cannot be selected. To move to the parent of the selected node one can simply double click in the view.
