Operations group

The group is intended for systematization of different operations with similar parameters. Creating a group does not result in any toolpath calculations, but parameters may be set for all operations in the group.

The operations group may include operations of any type, including operations groups. That is, using operations groups it is possible to form a job list with structure like a tree. Assignment and behavior of operations group are similar to the folder in a file system of the computer.

If some group parameters are changed then similar parameters of all included operations will be changed too (if operation from the group contains such parameters).

Operation is expedient to apply at machining parts by several operations with similar parameters. In this case it is possible to reduce time of set-up of operations parameters (avoiding repeated parameters setting).
