5 Axis Under Cut

Creator

I am looking for the best way to machine the area circled in the picture. This will be on 5 axis machine using NX12. Looking for the best way to machine what is left after finishing the wall with a 1/2 end mill with .125 corner radius. So i will need to cut the lower part of the wall the radius and some on the floor. I have attached a part file also.1A_02.jpg

Hey @jowens909 ,

 

I would use a Flowcut Reference toolpath with a Ball Mill

Here is a video of how the material is being removed.

Part file is attached. Done in NX1847.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you @AlexanderFreund ! That worked great. Unfortunately I can't open your prt file. Any way to do that using a variable tool axis? IF possible I could use a tapered end mill.
