How to Save a Knowledge Base
To create a Knowledge Base, start by creating machining operations. Once created these operations can be re-sequenced in your current Setup if necessary. Use this command only when you are completely satisfied with the machining operations used and their sequence.
•A Knowledge Base file must be created before you can load it. See Save a Knowledge Base for information about creating one.
•A Knowledge Base DOES NOT have associated toolpaths. It loads temporary toolpath operations into your Machining Job with the knowledge parameters for machining.
•All cutting tools used by the Knowledge Base are saved with it.
•IMPORTANT: If a tool in the Knowledge Base uses a tool whose tool name is currently defined in the document, the document tool is used. That is why each of your tools should contain a unique tool name.
•An operation loaded from a Knowledge Base must be opened, assigned machining regions and then generated to see the associated toolpaths.
•You can save a Knowledge Base file for each toolpath, each setup and/or in any combination.
•When you load a Knowledge Base all machining operations (mops) in the knowledge base are appended to your Machining Job. You will need to delete the mops that you do not need.
