I have a circular part with a key slot which is obround. I am machining the obround slot profile. I use roughing and finishing operatons.
The tool retraction is more in finishing as it retracts after each step. Is ther any parameter to reduce the tool retraction?
Attaching an image for understanding the profile.
Have you tried defining another retract plane than the default one used for the operation ?
You can define a plane at the hight you want and define it as the retract plane for this specific sequence.
I tried applying a trajectory milling and played with parameters, helped me to do with less retratcts.
