Hello,

I'm new here and I'm quite sure it is posted somewhere but can't find it and it is probably very basic..

I'm trying to select the staring point of a profiling cut, like show on pictures the red arrows are the starting point of the feature, I'm trying to change it to the blue arrows

Loke in parameters, sorting etc … no luck

Thanks
Thierry

Profiling uses start point of the curve for location of entry/exit. You can change start point of closed curves by selecting Change Start under Curve Modeling tab in VisualCAD & regenerate your machining operation.
Note: If you have use Mid-Point of longest side selected under cut parameters tab you will have to uncheck this to use the start point of the curve for entry/exit.
If the curves are not joined, you can use merge or chain curve command to make this a closed curve before changing start point.
Alternatively you can create a pre-defined curve region by selecting the curves and change the start point.
Refer to the following blog article on How to Control the Cut Side and Start Point
