SOLIDWORKS Using (IFR) and Creating Your Own Strategies
Automatic feature recognition (AFR) is a powerful tool that
picks up feature types and assigns them with strategies from the Tech DB. Interactive
feature recognition (IFR) allows you to create your own 2.5 axis features one
by one allowing complete control of geometry selection. The strategy that has
been selected for a feature defines what operations are created when ‘generate
operation plan’ is actioned. You can create your own strategies by creating
‘2.5 axis milling operations’ then saving these strategies back to the Tech DB
so that they can be used next time as a strategy. It is also possible to edit
current strategies and save then via the use of ‘save operation plan’ creating
new strategies or saving over old ones.
