How to: Select Machining Regions

Machining Regions can be selected at any time while the operation dialog is displayed but before you select the Generate Toolpath button.  You can select an Onshape sketch or surface edges of the part.  Any dimensional changes to the Onshape part will propagate into the VisualCAMc for Onshape toolpaths.  See How to Edit Toolpaths Associatively for information on how to do this.  

When you select a previously defined operation from the Machining Job, the Machining Regions used to define that operation are highlighted on the part.  Note that a 2-1/2 Axis Facing operation does not require Machining Regions to be selected.
