Circle segment end mill


If I try to create the toolpaths of a complex 5 axis wall with a 10 parameter tool, I get an error in external library. 

If I use an other 10 parameter tool i get my toolpaths, does anyone know how to fix this?

I tried programming it with a variable streamline.


See the attachement for the files.

It is a testcase to compare a circle segment end mill with a ball mill.

I think it's a bug! It does not like that tool for whatever reason.  I modified the tool and uncheck the 'check above tool ball' option then it cut but the modified tool is a whole lot diff. from your original tool.

This problem is recorded by GTAC and development is working on it.

They will try to fix it when there's a newer version of NX.
