I am trying to generate a swarf tool path for turbine blade finishing. I set tool axis as Swarf Blade and also set it clearance angle to 0 .I set the depth range to 4 passes but i got strange results in simulation. Tool of 6mm dia is making steps along the blades instead of smooth finishing.
I dont know where i am making mistake. I hope some one may help me to figure this out.
simulation is OK.
Your tool is not aligned to the blade.
And that is the question...
Try to uncheck box for the collision checking.
Tool will be more aligned but there are undercuts.
I don know if blade geometry fits for such machining.
Maybe somebody more experienced can help you,
I too think that my blade geometry might not fit for the swarf tool path. But the question i put here was for asking about the tilt clearance angle.
Assume that if blade geometry is fit for the swarf tool path then clearance angle=0 is fine or not??
1. Swarf blade hase 2 modes of activation.
2. clearance angle has different meaning with the two modes:
