Floor Wall - Planar contour milling

Hello I have a issue by machining a planar contour. 1.png

as you can see even the hole plane of the part is machined. I dont want

that free space is machined. I know I can specify trim boundaries to avoid that, but I want to teach

that operations and trim boundaries cannot be teached.

 

I will also upload the parts. Thank you for Help

Hello Muddi_91,

 

thank you for your question.

 

I saw that you selected the same geometry for the Part and Blank. That can lead to issues in the operations.

 

Did you try with Cavity Mill? It seams like it is working there like you expect it and you can also use Cavity Mill in FBM.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.

 

Cheers,

Alexander

Hello Alexander,

 

thank you for your reply.

The blank part is not exactly the same, the depth of the blank part is bigger.

 

I have tried now with cavity Mill - I would like to machine the face with one pass the

tool Diameter should be big enough to machine that in one pass but it does not do that (same like in your picture)

Do you know how do change that.

 

Thank you Smiley Happy

By changing the "percent of the Flat Diameter" to the maximum, I get one tool Path.

But the contour is not fully machined although the Tool-Diameter is big enough.

Maybe I can set a offset to change that or something like that ?

Thank you for that hint, it is working better know with that setting.

But I have the same problem like in cavity milling.

 

The path should be in the middle like shown in the picture - I can manipulate that with a negativ

blank stock but it changes the path for all sides with the same value and when the value

gets to high not all floors are machined...

Or is it Possible to use that the Inner contour is used for the tool path ?

 

Hope you can help me here

In planar mill, you can assign different stock on each boundary member. (edit the boundary, then "edit" again)

Is the same available in this operation type?

In Floor_Wall try setting "Cutting Parameters > Connections > Across Voids" to "Follow"

Hello,

 

acctually I want to avoid boundaries because of the non-compatibility

with the MKE/Operation-teaching.

 

Thank you
