  • How to turn off Clearance Cube???

    So I started writing a program with Clearance Cube and it is not working the way I expected it to. So, in the middle of the program I click on the Activate Clearance Cube to turn it off and I get and message that says " Clearance Cube cannot be disabled when a feature has its ClearanceCube Motion enabled." Any thoughts on what this means? I thought I could turn off and on like my clearance planes?

    On the Cube settings dialog, status tab, manually edit every single feature to OFF.

    What about the Cube isn't working?

    I'll bet it's using the feature vectors, not probe tip vector, for navigation - right?

      I don't use the clearance cube myself but my understanding is once you start programing with it on all those features will have it set to on and cannot be disable for those features. I believe it acts as a global setting.

        Thanks Josh

        So if I program with clearance cube active this can be turned off on each individual feature in the dialog? This is good to know!

          Josh - I wanted to place a move point in the part for the next feature but it kept moving the probe out after it executed the move. What I ended up doing was just increased my pre-hit distance to clear a ledge. Thanks, though I think next time I will use the cube setting. Thank you.
