Contour profile - multi depth issue

Hello,

 

(nx11.0.2)

 

I want to mill this 360mm tall part in 9 passes.

It generates only 2 or 3 passes.

What is wrong?

Did I set some parameters wrong?

 

notice: end mill , B angle 30.

When you change the angle to 5 or 10 degrees everything is fine.

Maybe at that angle the tool path self intersects,

 

Try turning the collision checking off under non-cutting parameters

Hello,

use the Automatic auxiliary floor. Do not Specify Auxiliary floor.
Then it works

thanks

yes but when tool has smaller B angle it works with specifying auxiliary floor.

I just want to understand why it doesnt work with bigger B tool angle.

Hello

 

When you use contour profile than the tool lenght should be longer than the milled face.

There is an exception. If the angle of the tool is less than as that of the wall.

In this case the tool is internal extended.

So in case of cylindrical tool ther is no problem.

Also in your case when you change the angle to 5 or 10 degrees.

I append your part where the pathes are generated to the top of the part.

I changed only the tool.
