Tapered Pocketing


This topic explains the Parameters page of the Tapered Pocketing operation found in the Mill V-Carve Wizard.


Note: The V-Carve Tapered Pocketing operation is designed for pocketing using a mill instead of the V-tool.


Pocketing Parameters


  • Pocket Depth - displays the Total Depth that is set in the Feature page.

  • Depth of Cut - sets the maximum Z-axis step down. This value is used even if the tool can remove the material in a single pass at any portion of the geometry.

  • Endmill Cutter Width % - sets the maximum amount that V-Carve may step the tool sideways in relation to the tool diameter when pocketing with a mill.
