    Looking for a way to creat a feature for an outside and inside oringe groove. I can’t seem to create a tool to make the cut nor find and operation that will do it. I originally thought I’d use a boring tool but can’t seem to grab that tool in anyother feature. Attached is the file

    Micah,

    Please try uploading the file inside a zip folder. This way we can take a look at it. Please also have tool path on that part for us to review.

    I’ve attempted to place it in a zip folder but winzip is not allowing me to do so. The file is smaller than the maxium size allowed. I will attempt some other avenues. Thanks. We’ll try this.

    I managed to do so. Also there are no tool paths. I have deleted all my attempts. I create what I need for the profiles, it’s the grooves I can’t seem to get to work.

    Micah,

    What is the tool you are defining to cut this part? Is it equal to the o-ring groove width?

    Sean,

    I had planned on using a tool of the same geometry and just preform a 2xis motion, but then I couldn’t find a tool small enough to fit in there without making one (outside obviously would not be the issue). So my next thought was to use a threading tool and perform a 3 axis function. I couldn’t get wither tool to be available for me.

    Thanks, Micah

    key slot cutter.You may have to diamond hone a radius.Draw 2D tool path.Cut with a profile strategy,circular lead in/out.

    Jrmach,

    You must have a newer bersion. I’m running V25 and it won’t allow me to open it. Do you have the capability to save as an older version?

    Yeah,that was V26.
    In V25,you cannot simulate with a T/Key Slot tool unless you have multi-axis add-on.Something new for V26.BUT,that does not mean you cannot tool path it and get g-code.
    You will do a 2D wireframe drawing.Profile tool path.Circular lead in and out.You just have to visualize the cutter and how and where it needs to cut.Set parameters according.

    You can fake V25 with a t-cutter
    Just a sample of a cutter and its parameters to get a visual
    Some work but once you get some cutters made up in your tool library its not to bad.

    Here is a video of the file in V26.FWIW.

    Sorry about the video quality,but running BoB and video capture software at same time is all my poor computer can do barely.

    Well, thanks everyone I will give it a shot. It looks like V26 has alot more capabilities than V25. May have to look into that. Is there no way of adding tslot cutter to 2axis profile available tools?

    Thank you.
