I have had a situation which is outside my normal turning duties, which I had to us a 16mm neutral triangle insert to machine a groove, we are machining without cutter comp, so the correct setup output point should be tip, but when I run the program in Vericut, the result is under cutting the groove, see below
now to get this to work properly in vericut, I had to alter the tools tracking point to represent an X_OFFSET arrangement, see below.
This worked with the tool path generated by Creo.
I now set the TIP OUTPUT to X_offset , and reset the vericut tool to a neutral tip, and it works properly ??????
So Creo is treating the tip output as follows
TIP = X_OFFSET
X_OFFSET = TIP
This is a major bug for an engineering software to have. Has anyone else found this out.
