How to park turrets during sub-spindle docking

Did you know that you can park turrets during sub-spindle docking?

The toolchange position is not necessarily a safe position for sub-spindle docking. 

In Edgecam 2009 R2, use the new Move menu Turret Parking  command to return the turret to a safe co-ordinate position and index station prior to sub-spindle docking.

Note that you need to insert any required Synchronize Turrets commands – these are not automatically inserted.

If a park instruction is not immediately followed by a move to toolchange on that same turret, you use the Turret Unpark command to generate a move to the toolchange position.

Turret Parking moves will be simulated in Edgecam Simulator.
