Hello 

You can do this with Floor Milling or with FBM Groove Milling

I insert this two operations in the part

 

regards

Re: Which operation for groove Milling

if flute length is 10.3 = slot hieght, floor wall doesnt work

also prewiev of floor (green) is not on the slots floor.

Do you think it is possible to mill it with floor wall because I have no good result in case that tool fits in slot.

Re: Which operation for groove Milling

Unfortunaly planar mill is not compatible with MKE.

I would like to teach the operation.

I know this behavior.

You can overcame this if you set the flute length of the tool 0.01 smaller than the groove.

Hi Muddi,

 

Have you tried setting negative stock on your operation?

 

It's not an elegant solution but probably you will get the tool path you want.

Re: Which operation for groove Milling

Thank you for that suggestion. I have tried, the operation is operated, but

with the negativ stock, the tool path has an offset in one side,

so the the machined feature is shifted...

Thank you its working Smiley Wink.

Why is that not possible that the tool with is equal to the feature width ?

Is it planned that to change that in future NX versions !?
