The Porcupine command displays normal vectors on faces and surfaces to aid in the visualization of changes in part curvature, which assists with the selection of appropriate machining strategies. The Heat Map command displays surfaces rendered in different colors according to the local radius of curvature. This enables users to review minimum and maximum curvatures for the selection of the most appropriate cutting tools. The Toolpath Analysis command traces the position of the tool along a selected tool path to aid in evaluating toolpath smoothness and to examine the quality of point distribution.
