Avoid multiple axis outputs (X)

[ Edited ]

Hello,

how can I avoid these multiple outputs in straight line?

It is PP or operation settings question?

(variable streamline on radius)

56 L  X+1
57 L X+1.5
58 L X+2
59 L X+2.5
60 L X+3
61 L X+3.5
62 L X+4
63 L X+4.5
64 L X+5
65 L X+5.5
66 L X+6
67 L X+6.5
68 L X+7
69 L X+7.5
70 L X+8
71 L X+8.5
72 L X+9
73 L X+9.5
74 L X+10
75 L X+10.5
76 L X+11
77 L X+11.5
78 L X+12
79 L X+12.5
80 L X+13
81 L X+13.5
82 L X+14
83 L X+14.5

I would start from checking this parameter:

I set 50mm (dimension of the cube) and result is the same.

Am I doing something wrong?

(Fixed contour - streamline on the same geometry same result too.)

 

Preview of points match with it I think.

Do you get the same results?

Re: Avoid multiple axis outputs (X)

you tried Surface Aera ? with option cut step number

@mkn

Re: Avoid multiple axis outputs (X)

With cut number 1 or 0 it splits path in a half

- still no good, and workaround with using other method is no good too for other cases.

Maybe it it is some linearization  thing in PP?

Re: Avoid multiple axis outputs (X)

I opened your part and I changed the cut step to tolerances in streamline : intool and outool to 0.1 mm ,it works ,maybe a workaround for you... a solution for me...

@mkn

Re: Avoid multiple axis outputs (X)

agree, tolerances helped

thanks

Re: Avoid multiple axis outputs (X)

What a great tip. I would not have thought changing the cut step to tolerance in the streamline method dialog would make such a  differance. Always thought the number of points was resolved after being projected unto the part.

 

Thanks, Eric

Re: Avoid multiple axis outputs (X)

In general, if trying to resolve if something is a "post" issue or a "operation settings" issue, list the internal toolpath.  If the data is in the internal toolpath, then it is a "operation settings" issue. If it isn't, then it is likely a "post" issue.

(note there are some things where a post change can fix an operation issue - e.g. ...\POSTBUILD\pblib\custom_command\pb_cmd_combine_rotary.tcl)

Re: Avoid multiple axis outputs (X)

yes, PP thing can be the way too - combine rotary works for rotary axis in case XYZ are not changing.

But is pitty that this not works for X/Y/Z axis.

 

And now I am thinking - striaght line can consist not from only one axis. It can be XY, XYZ.

So there can be multiple output too - so then PP should test if the points are layng on straight line.

Then even combine rotary could omit some extra X+A in case of milling thread on cylinder (not only A with fixed XYZ).

I dont know if PP can do it or we can programe it. Smiley Happy
