» Topic: Milling A Radius Slot in Z axis
- October 20, 2014 at 2:56 pm #20074
Iam using Version 26 Pro.
Not sure how to describe this so please look at file.
Iam trying to mill a .4375 slot along X and Z axis with a .4375 ball endmill, that is similar to a upside down U shape.
Can this be done in a similar way as if the groove was in the X Y plane and using a line instead of solid surface, like a 2d profile?
Open to any suggestions or examples.

Their are many ways to do any gob. Myself I think some thing like example 2 would keep the chatter out of slot. These are just ideas nothing to your spec.
I don’t know of any way in to 2D that V26 will do it, but maybe someone else will have some ideas also.

With Slot #1 it would be cutting a lot of air and has the rapid issues at the ends but I think that be solved by adding a vertical line to the wire frame on the ends but would still have the air problem.
For my use #3 would work best I think but then again these are just some ideas.

I was thinking on the same lines as i have tried already what you suggested above. I was thinking there was a way to do a 2d profile path in the X and Z plane. Similiar to your 3D wireframe example. Just without all the air and better roughing.
I have tried to set the plane in the machine setup but with no success.

I can see that #3 would give a problem at the ends. Changing start points with a lead in radius would be much better. as in #4
