Hello

 

I Have a question...

If i create a face milling operation with Zig-Zag toolpath, the toolpath retracts on every cutting depth.

Is there an option to cut backward?

Okey thank you.

I asked because the first cam i've used was Mastercam 9.1 and there was a button to set the toolpath after stepdown backword.

The searching for this button has endet Smiley Wink

How to do this edition?

Re: Face Milling

In the tool path editor, set the selection to cut level, select a level, and reverse it.
