12.2.32. User Blocks

There is a layer operation type called "User Blocks" available for both turning and milling projects. This operation allows users to input their own blocks in SimCam documents. This can be helpful for adding code for a canned cycle not supported by SimCam, including a comment, or inserting extra blocks for movements. All these tasks can be performed using the User Blocks layer operation type.
 
When you open the parameters for a User Blocks layer, you will encounter the following dialog:
 
 
To create movement operations (such as linear fast and feed movements), input the position values in the X, Y, and Z fields, select the type of movement, and click the Add button.
 
Additionally, you can add entirely custom blocks by typing them in the Free User Blocks text box. When postprocessing, SimCam will first add the movements (if applicable) and then the free blocks.
