DeclaraCAD can be used to generate toolpaths using OCCT's primitives. Custom models can be created as needed. These can be then used by various declarations to display, simulate, and animate them.

Toolpath animations

Simple animations can be used to check toolpaths for potential interference or other problems.

Animation controls

The animation controls can be used to pause, resume, rewind, or jump forward or back in the animation. To activate the controls, either press the ta key sequence or select "Toggle animation controls" from the spacebar or right menus. The key sequence ts can be used to quickly pause/resume an animation. The slider can be used to quickly jump to any place in the animation. When the slider is in focus scrolling the will move frames.

Once paused you can navigate around to verify that the toolpaths look correct.
