I have a question about Planer mill.

 I am going to cut red section with Ø12 Flat .

 

 First. I used Z-level Profile.

  I like Z-level. because it is no jump and no plunge.

 

 In other words.

 

 one engage, one retract. and using Stagger ramp on part.

 

 But, Planar_mill have to many jump and plunge.

 to many jump...

and plunge..

 

I want to use the Planar mill as Z-level

 

What should I do?

 please help and thanks.

Hi,

 

Is there a reason why you are not using the Hole Milling operation. It gives you the ability to use a Helical Cut Pattern which most customers seem to prefer?

yes I know hole milling.

 

but sometimes hole milling can not selected iges modeling.

 

thank you for your advise.

As a bare minimum, you can even use hole milling on just a point where you manually define the direction, depth and diameter of the feature to machine. Wouldn't that be easier?

 

I will be happy to try and help if you can share a sample IGES model that is causing difficulties.

If you want to use 2d use Finish Wall.

 

Set your boundary at top of part, set your floor, and put cut level bottom only. Change your engage open to same as  closed and then set  closed as ramp on part at whatever  angle  you want.

Before hole milling we used to calculate the helical diameter as a tool % 

 

100*(HoleD-ToolD)/ToolD

 

Use helical engage and floor only

Need separate operations for different diameters

This was to get Helical output instead of linear that ramp on shape output.

 

Homemaking should get you there

If the iges is a solid try "Heal Geometry" & "Optimise Face" it will often help

Or manual define holes on points
