Robot 6th axis management

For the positioning the axis tool it is necessary define 5 freedom degrees. The standard industrial robot have a 6 axis. In the situation when tool is not coaxial with the last robot joint rotation axis then is present an infinite number of robot positioning in the point by the rotation tool around own axis.

In the SprutCAM provided two methods for the automatically positioning 6th joint axis: <Fixed vector> and <Direct to point>.
