Solid object assemblies that contain more than one ‘island’ or single solid object.
Machining that is nested within machining that does not contact one of the six-part faces.
A part edge of a rectangle-shaped part that is created by a machining process between two original edges. For example, the edges created by a toe kick notch cutout or angled cut between two original edges.
Parts for which the surface points are not confined to a single plane. They are parts having a three-dimensional quality and are commonly described as curved or bent parts.
A part edge of a rectangle-shaped part, defined by the width and length of the rectangle. Microvellum refers to these edges as faces 1, 2, 3, and 4. The edgebanding for these edges is also known as EBL1, EBL2, EBW1, and EBW2, as shown on the Microvellum virtual machining block.
A route machining operation that ‘penetrates’ the full depth or thickness of the material.
Parts for which the surface points of a single face all lie within the same plane. They are flat parts and may originate from either a flat panel part or a 3D object.

A physical visualization tool for understanding the relationship of various machine points relative to part faces and machine origins.
