Completely machine both sides of a blade without edge rolling
In Multi Blade operations, the Blade Edge option controls where the tool path stops following the blade geometry and begins extensions. You can now use the new No Curling option to prevent the cutter from rolling over the blade edges.
Created with NX CAM 9.0.3
No Curling extends the tool path tangentially without rolling around the sharp corners.You can also enter an Extension value to further extend the path tangentially.
