Custom Trajectory

Custom Trajectory

I need to use a custom trajectory to mill a scroll pattern but the tool
I am using needs to have a ramp angle. I am using a step depth of 2. mm
per pass. The last cut is 25mm deep. There is not an open section for
the tool to feed down at 90 degrees, it has to ramp in above the cut.
How do I add a ramp angle to this sequence?

Thanks,

Custom Trajectory

Byron,



What I have done is in customize > build cut> approach (plunge, tangent, or
normal)> click on the offset and then on Toolpath. This will bring up a
dialog box to click which axis you want to offset.



There are other ways to do it as well.



Let me know if you need more help.



Tony
