Wrong path generation in undercut (Turning)


Dear Community,


I have a serious problem with the generated tool path in turning.

The problem can be seen in the attached picture.

When I would like to roughing that undercutted profile then NX generate "Stepover" path (Neon green path with F2 feedrate) but it should be "Cut" (Cyan blue with cut feed rate).

In this case unfortunately I must rewrite those feed rates manually in the NC code.

So can anybody give me an advice how can I avoid this problem?


Thank you very much for your help!




Re: Wrong path generation in undercut (Turning)

Out of the box, the feedrates should be the same.

Check that the stepover move feed rate is set to 100 %Cut.
