I like to use spot drill cycles to debur small holes, like an m4x0.7, or if a small hole is near a wall. Previously, I used a 0 diameter mill with a 45 degree angle on a 6 mm flute length and the spot drill cycle accepts endmills and drills so it works. However when I try to use a predefined chamfer tool to perform the same operation, I am unable to select the chamfer tool. Also I cannot drag the operation onto the tool in the machine tool view, I am wondering why this is?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Instead of a user defined milling tool, use a chamfer mill. You can create one, or retrieve from the library. These are class 0205 instead of 0251.
