Tool Path Question


New member
I am an ME student at Clemson. I have an
undergrad position with a professor and my task is to teach myself Catia, among
other things. I have learned alot from you all and now I need to ask about the
surface machining work bench.

I am trying to create a tool path so that I can machine the part I have
created. The tutorial starts off by stating that when you enter the surface machining
too bench the part will appear surrounded by rough stock. I do not see
the rough stock and there is nothing written about any prerequisite. Is there
an operation to create the rough stock?
