Helical Tool Path

How do I drive an end mill in a helical path without Holemaking?  (We do not have a license)


Re: Helical Tool Path

Are you sure about the license? I am not sure if hole milling and thread milling require FBM.


Otherwise, in surface contouring, with a closed drive surface, either streamline or surface area drive have a helical cut pattern.


Some users cut with a helical engage move, but i dont recommend it.
