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?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
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....
