Advice on Smoothing Path Shape

Pioneer
Pioneer

I am using a Fixed contour operation, with Area milling as drive method.
I was not happy with the 90deg stepover and wanted to smooth.

The result however does not look at all as I intended.
Any adviced on how to improve this?

 

Many thanks
used NX 12.0.1

You could try the Spiral cut pattern.  This may help.  You could also try the Smoothing Tab inside the Non-Cutting Moves parameters.

Hi Tony,

the Spiral cut pattern is no yet available in 12.0.1.
Which i am using unfortunately.

 

Hi Hjoy,

as many answering on this forum I am not able to share files easilly.
I've attached 2 screenshots where you can see roughly the surface I am trying to machine.
And for which I am looking for the best methods.
At this moment Fixed Contour - Area Milling does the best (calculation time, errors in path, ...)

Hey @Michiel2,

 

the magenta area is a perfect match for Guiding Curves. You do have Multi Axis Guiding Curves in NX12.0.1 Just morph between the two outer boundaries.

Hi @AlexanderFreund,

Do you have any advice on settings? Keep default?
When I tried Multi Axis Guiding Curves, I tented to get stuck in calculation times, projection errors...
(I forgot to add the side view I intended to add to my previous post, is probably valuable addition)

 

Edit: I found some inconsitency in my model, likely causing the very long calculation time, and errors.
Now I can start tuning.
