Offset Toolpath

Offset toolpath

Use this option to offset XYZ code for a selected value and side.

Select part of CNC code you want to offset.

Please note: selected path must be open and not self-intersecting for this option to work.

You can set:

  • Offset plane (XY, ZX, or YZ)
  • Offset side – left, right or axial
  • Offset value (positive number)
  • You can leave original code intact and make several copies of path and define type of transition between paths

Check selected options in the preview area on the right.

Click OK to change selected code.

Note: CNC code is formatted according to currently selected machine settings. Do not select CNC code with various G and M preparatory commands other than G0, G1, G2, G3, G90 ,G91, S, F, M3, M4 because these commands will not be (re)generated in new code.
