    Does anyone know if and how you can program a helical tapered slot using the 4th axis? Can do a helical slot on a straight section cylinder but not on a tapered one.

    Karl,

    You can program this. You would have to use the rotary function or one of the 4x Pro tool paths to do it. The 4X pro would give you a lot more control over how the tool path itself calculates.
