To Comp or Not to Comp....That is the QuestionMany CAMWorks users have recently asked questions about Toolpath Center Compensation and whether or not to run with it or without it. At CAMS, we strongly recommend taking advantage of CAMWorks Toolpath Center Compensation functionality. One of the main benefits of a CAM system is the ability to display, simulate, and evaluate toolpath prior to machine movement. Take full advantage of this benefit; alleviate considerable confusion for the user while also ensuring on-screen display represents the output code.
