Turns Tabs into Helical ramps



If True, a polyline is created on layer NC_Helix and turned into a 3D arc in code.

If nil, a polyline is created on layer NC_leads and turned into point to point lines in code.



Should always be T. Affects how 4 axis cutting treats complex geometry






"T" response will produce augmented data in the toolpath for full 5 axis solutions. This should only be set to "T" when a full 5 axis solution is provided by CIM-TECH.COM, Inc..



Always set to True.  This provides the ability for Router-CIM to output comments in the code based on drawing parameters like drawing name, login name, date, etc.



Eliminates the feed distance to material move which is the extra Z move before a cut starts. FEED DIST TO MATERIAL in the tool edit



Text Height for Subroutine Labels.



If True, use the ADS version of the postprocessor.



Turns on automatic sub program numbering. When True, sub programs are automatically numbered, starting at 100 and increments by 100 for each additional sub.



Canned cycle cutting mode, either 98 or 99. When set to 98, tools retract to Safety plane, When set to 99, tool retracts to R point set in Router-CIM control panel.



If True, all cut blocks have a name based on the drawing name. If nil, all cut blocks have a name based on the cycle name.



Canned cycle type, on most Fanuc controls, use either 81 (spot drill cycle) or 83 (peck drill cycle).



If set to T, the geometry objects used to make shapes are deleted when the shapes are made. If set to NIL (the default), the geometry objects are left on the NC_GEO layer when shapes are made.









Name of the text editor for List Edit. For R10 and R11 users only.



If set to a non zero value, the lead in and lead out of heli cycles will be rotated away from the part by the specified amount. The leads will only rotate when a single pass cut is made.



Use NC Surfer when you cut a Nurbs cycle. Should be T to use the NCSurfer and nil if you do not want to use the NCSurfer.



Only use lines for open shape group sorting.



Extension to use on the output file.

Valid input is a string (value in quotes) up to 3 characters.



The path to use when creating the NC Code file. If blank, uses the current drive and directory.



Text font for NC text.



NIL = uses AutoCAD offset, T = uses Router-CIM offset



If True, Router-CIM will require a placement of an origin symbol and axis description during a CUT cycle. Mainly used for Nesting applications.



If set to T, no checks are made for duplicate definitions of selected objects. If set to NIL ( the default ), checks are made during the define process to see if the selected objects have already been defined. If so, messages instruct you exit or redefine the objects.



If T, enables the prompts for the Tape-to-Part extension. If you do not have NSEE or WNSEE, leave this nil.



This number is added to the offset value in Router-CIM. Sometimes this bias is required to created a specific offset.
