i am using tool tilt after my tool path is created but it is not undercutting.
i am driving from a point 5 inches above the part.
in tool tilt i set the angle to 180. degrees on every option but it is still not under cutting.
is there any other way to go about this?
Go to Solution.
Does the original path undercut?
You need to start with a path that undercuts, since Tilt Tool Axis rotates the tool axis about the center of the ball end - it does not move the tool position.
yes i changed the setting" check tool above ball" to off.
and created the tool path to cut to the surface, with collisions.
then once i got a tool path that under cut, i used the tool tilt to avoid the collisions.
@johnnyb Good to know you got it figured out :*)
