7.1.2 Last exit

The Last exit section enables you to define the last retreat of the tool from the cutting area after
the machining.

InventorCAM enables you to specify the level to which the retreat movement is performed. The
following options are available:

• Direct

When this option is chosen, the machining is finished directly in the last point of the tool
path. No retreat movement is performed.

• Back to clearance area

The retreat movement is performed back to the specified Clearance area (see topic 5.1),
through the Retract distance and Exit safety distance levels (see topic 5.2).

• Use retract distance

The retreat movement is performed to the Retract distance level.

• Use safety distance

The retreat movement is performed to the Exit safety distance level.

• Back to clearance through tube center

This option is useful in case of port and tubular parts
machining. The idea is to enable the tool to exit from the
machined part through the tube center outwards.

When this option is chosen, the tool retreats from the interior
of the machined tubular part through its center up to the
clearance area level.

InventorCAM enables you to use the defined Lead Out options (see
topic 7.3) for the last exit definition.
