Can someone let me know if you can profile using both leading edge and trailing edge of a ID neutral grooving tool? The same question would apply to OD profiling like doing a ball on the end of a shaft. I need to profile the ID of a ring much like a wedding band. V22 does not seem to have an orientation for this. If I choose orientation 3 or 4 the results are the same. Currently I have to manipulate my part drawing to get the profile I need. There has to be an easier way. I can choose round insert and input the radius but nothing changes on the toolpath.
The lathe will not calculate for the tool cutting on both sides. You would have to use the opposing orientation for it to calculate on the opposite side.
