Adaptive milling - step up questions

Hello,

 

1. question:

Look at this picture bellow.

2 bodies, 2 same operations.

Step up distance is set to 2mm.

Level - single.

On left body I increased draft angle.

On the right body is smaller draft, but there is some.

Why I didnt get 2mm step up on the right body?

2. question:

Why the tool path is not generated to the top of the body?

The last tool path level, top is more than 2mm  bellow the top.

 

3. question:

What means min cut depth? Because I set it to 2mm.

And as this says,

The tool path is different as I expect.

 

Thank you for clarifcation

@Juraj, I hope you are aware that you are testing a Pre Release version of the software. Would you mind sending me an e-Mail with your questions

 

Before others ask where to find this, the Bottom Up Cutting Feature for Adaptive Milling will be released at the 22nd January 2019.

 

We will provide adequate documentation as well as Tutorial videos in time.

 

Cheers,

Alexander

@Aliean

 

[1] Will be released next january and it is not allowed to share the ENV publically. There are reasons why it is not released yet.

[2] This doesn't need an ENV, since this is available in NX12.0.2 for production usage
