Tilt is available as an option for the finishing and roughing strategies in HSM Performance Pack. With Tilt enabled, HSM Performance Pack can automatically tilt the tool and holder to prevent it from colliding with the part.
Different types of transitions between cutting passes are available for finishing strategies. It allows the user to control whether the tool should stay at the surface or move away during the transition.
