Hole Making - Bore milling spring passes

Builder
Builder

  I have been using the hole making operations more often but I cannot find an way to add spring passes to a bore milling operation. I would like to be able to use any of the 4 cut options (Helical, Spiral, Helical/Spiral, Circle) and be able to add finish pass and/or spring passes.

 

  Currently, as a work around, I have been using Helical/Spiral with a radial constant step over of .001mm and I set my "start diameter" .003-.005mm smaller than the finish size of the hole. Is there an easier way?

John.

Please try the following:

-Cutting Parameters--> Add Cleanup Passes.

-Hole Milling main--> Radial-->Radial so--># of pass=2  Dist=0.0

 

2 was just random # I picked...finish+ spring pass...

 

Hopefully this will help.

Kal,

 

 This is the solution I would like to use but it does not work for me, I do not get any spring passes. I am on NX 10.0.3.5. Strange....
