Tool tracking in fixed and variable contour


Hello !


Is there any way to use a different tool tracking point in fixed or variable contour?


For example using a normal end-mill at a different height, as you can define within contour profile using ring height.




Re: Tool tracking in fixed and variable contour

Other than on/tanto/contact in some drive methods, you can't select the point that drives the path.

Of you are only concerned with the output coordinates, and you want something other than tool tip, you could do it inthe post. Take a look at custom commands for ball center to get some ideas.
