Q. What is new in V23 Feature Recognition, part 1?
A. V23 introduces associative tapping attributes on features.
V23 is installed with standard tapping tables. You can use these or create your own. Theses tapping tables can be automatically associated to a feature by diameter or can be manually associated to a feature.
Once the tapping attribute is associated to a feature, you can create your strategy to machine it. Drill and tap depths are automatically adjusted according to tapping table.
The feature/s can now be toolpath thru Manual Hole Machining or Manual-Auto Hole Machining. This feature does not apply to Automatic Hole Machining.
If you are using Catia for your design software and have already applied these attributes to your tapping features, WORKNC can automatically recover these attributes from Catia.
