Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to run the Layers Table dialog, from where you can define various properties for each of the available layers in the current document.
This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Tables » Layers command from the main menus.
After launching the command, the Layers Table dialog will appear. Use this dialog to define the name and layer type, for each of the available layers in the document. You can also specify the Draw and Flash colors associated to each layer and control whether a layer is turned ON or OFF (i.e. toggle its display status).
The dialog also enables you to lock a layer. When a layer is locked, you will not be able to carry out any editing commands involving objects placed upon it.
Layers can also be deleted from within this dialog.
Clicking the View Layer Order button will open the View/Change Layers Order dialog, from where you can define the order in which the layers are drawn and the direction of drawing - either from Top to Bottom or from Bottom to Top.
- You can also define layer name, visibility, locked status and layer color, in the CAMtastic panel.
- If any layer has already been assigned as a Drill layer, then a fabrication drawing may be created from it, otherwise a Top and Bottom layer type assignment must be made, before drill drawing creation is possible.
- Drag and drop layers in the View/Change Layers Order dialog, to obtain the specific layer drawing order that you require.
