I am trying to finish mill the outer diameter of a large cylinder using a 1" ball nose end mill. I am generated a cutter path using Z-Level 5-axis (tilted at 20 degrees away from the part to use a shorter end mill) that looks pretty good but I'm having trouble getting the cut direction to do what I need it to do. The C-axis on my machining center has a range of +90/-450 degrees. In order to keep my rotary axis from winding up too far, I'm using the "Mixed" cut direction but i need to force the initial cut to go the opposite way that NX has chosen so that my C-axis rotates in the negative direction. I've played around with it for a few hours but I cannot seem to find a way to reverse the inital cut direction. Does anyone know how to make it go the other way?
