Can you get rid of a non cutting move in lathe roughing

Valued Contributor

I have a part with a groove in it that I have to rough away. I would like to just continue cutting across this area without a retract or rapid move. The groove might be shallower in real life and I would like to avoid removing material rapiding across. I know I can go to the model and use a synchronis modeling tool to remove the groove easily, but would prefer to accomplish this through the tool path or without changing the spun outline geometry.

Is there an option like "cut across voids" available in the operation you used?

Would be good to know what kind of operation you used to be able to really help you Smiley Wink

It is a rough turn OD operation subtype under turning.

 

I would like to know where I can find the "cut across voids"  option. I can't seem to find it.

If there is no designed option to do that, here are some more workarounds:

- in your roughing operation, you can add stock value to each single member of a spun outline geometry (not actually editing them)

- you can edit path which is ready and just change "Motion Type" of this fragments to "CUT"
