I have a mold that I am trying to machine. The spacing in between each boss is .034" I plan on using a .03125" flat end mill to machine the surface. I am trying to create cut lines that will go over the boss instead of around the boss. The tool would be cutting like a plunge mill but following the contour of the boss. This is how the boss looks like. I have tried to create cut-lines from edge it works but the end where it is rounded will start to go around instead of up and over. I tried "cut line with projected" and I can not get it right either. I am trying right now to use projected cuts to see if I can get the path. Does anybody have any other suggestion?
