Profile Part Overlapping

Profile Part Rotating

Allows profile geometry rotating when the rotate denial flag is not set to the order position in the database. Rotation angle is -180 degrees. Rotation is by center point.

Profile Part Mirroring

Allows profile geometry mirroring (flipping) when the denial flag is not set to the order position in the database. Mirroring is by center axis.

Collision Settings

Distances of nesting items can be defined.

Part-Part

The distance between two profile parts.

Part-Sheet

The distance between a profile part and the end of the profile.

Part-Technology

The distance between a profile part and technology.
