Circle Segment End Mill

Experimenter
Experimenter

For our thesis we will be using a Circle Segment End Mill. We found out how to define a 2 radius circle segment mill (using MILL_10_PARAMETER). We didn't find out how to define a 3 radius circle segment mill.

Also choosing an operation type is hard to find.

 

Does anyone here have experience with this kind of milling?

can you post an example drawing of what the tool geometry is that you are trying to define?

Also, are you just going to be trying to machine "planar mill" type operations, or do you want to do 3 or 5 axis surface contouring type operations with it?

See the attachment for the sketch of the mill.

 

We would use the mill for 5-axis simultaneous operations.

Here is another option but I can't get the top R5 between the shank and the flute.
