Tapping to shoulder depth

In tapping has anyone ever used shoulder depth? I am trying to use it but its not working properly? I would think if I have the tip depth defined in the tool that it sould be able to automatically add it on for me?


Can someone else try this or am I missing something? It would be nice if I have all my taps defined properly not to have to look up the tip length everytime and add it since it works so well on the drills.


Thanks TJ


Re: Tapping to shoulder depth

I tried really quick and it seems to ignore the tip length when calculating the shoulder depth like you said.

You could have the post look at the tip length and adjust your cycle depth output accordingly. It wouldn't display properly in NX, but the code would be correct.
