Learn how to choose the WCS and run multiple parts at once.
- [Instructor] In this video, we're going to be working…on establishing the work coordinate system…or multiple work coordinate systems.…Now when we originally set up this job,…you remember over here on the feature manager,…we established a G54 position.…So we pretty much already know…we want to use work offset number one…which is the G54 position.…Now I've got multiple parts on the screen.…I actually want to machine all four…of those at the same time.…Now, I could program each one individually…with the same operations, but that's a lot of extra work.…I also have the ability inside of HSM…to establish multiple work coordinate systems…and then just copy all those operations…to each one of those different parts.…
So in this case here, I could say I want four of those…and that'll automatically do all…those operations four times.…So let's go ahead and establish that.…So to do that, come over here to the Cam manager…and come up here, I notice that I've already…got one little operation in there,…which we're going to be posting out later.…
