Hey @mor5789,

 

attached is the programmed part file. As you said, I only programmed one slot, because I guess you do the instances and rotation on the machine and calling the program again.

 

I would wish you had NX12.0.2, because than you could utilize our new Area Mill Spiral, which is the choice to go for such a symmetric geometry (see picture below).

I attached both, an NX11 and NX12 version.

 

Let me know if this fits for you.


Cheers,

Yes of course. The program I made is just 3-Axis Toolpaths.

 

I think you can just do the rotation on your machine and call the programm again.
