Machining upwards only

When using plane finishing or drive operations and downward movement of the tool is not desired, it is recommended to use the machining upwards only mode.




If this mode is active, then upon reaching the top point of the work pass, the tool moves to the beginning of the next pass via the safe plane, from where again it moves upwards only.

By default the mode is off.

The machining upwards only mode for the plane finishing and drive operations can be defined in the <Strategy> page.
