Develop a Cut Sequence
Develops the Router-CIM database for selected cuts.
When you use 'Develop a Cut Sequence', you are defining all the cut cycle blocks, process list blocks and sequence blocks that will represent the basis of a sequence.
If you have selected an existing sequence that has developed tooling motions in it, the tooling motions are removed when the 'Develop a Cut Sequence' command is used.
An internal database is established when cut cycles are defined for use by Router-CIM. The database is referred to as a sequence knowledge. A sequence knowledge is an internal list that contains information about the selected cuts and any other Cut or Sequence commands that have attached additional data to the cuts. This database remains with the sequence in the form of an AutoCAD block in the current drawing. When Router-CIM commands perform activity on a sequence, the current sequence database is used and updated.
If this is the only command chosen in the command options, the result would be a group containing the selected cut blocks.
If other command options are selected that require a new definition of cut cycles, the definition phase for the cuts will occur. This is true when you develop tool motions, sort the cuts, or define subroutines. The option dialog interface will disable these commands until you indicate that definition of cuts is to occur.
By default this option is check and should normally be left that way.
