Hello,

Now I use contour mill to mill 5 aaxis surface. When I use mutiple depth to cut side face. It looks like more engage and retract. I do not know why? Someone knows what it happens?

 

Thanks in advance!

Try to align your tool axis differently with the contour profile operation.

There are three options available:

  • automatic
  • UV direction
  • along edges

Have you tried each of them and was the result always the same?

I would also report this to GTAC, so that development can improve the tool path in later releases.

Hi @Canateda

 

I made a few changes to get a more consistent tool path the largest was giving the tool a radius.

 

Take a look it may or may not be of use?

Thanks for your info.

Yes, Now tool path looks good. But I saw you use Dia20mm ball end mill to do this, But I would like to use the end mill to mill. Probably Siemens need improve this.

Have you tried using a smaller corner radius, so you get a bull nose tool?

As I said before, you need to report this to GTAC to have it fixed in a future release of NX.
