Re: ptc creo 3 - ramp angle

Hello, if you're using the new volume milling sequence you must specify a ramp entry. With the old volume sequence (Creo 2 and before) we didn't have to specify this, as soon as we were defining a ramp angle, the approach movement was a ramp.

Re: ptc creo 3 - ramp angle

if you use this site file and then change the ramp angle from 90 to 3 degrees it should work. If you want a helical entry change the "helical_diameter" to whatever diameter you want. If you want ramp then change that to "0"

Thank you for your confirmation!

I marked Raphael's reply (specify a ramp entry in addition to ramp angle) as Correct Answer, to reflect that the question has a solution.
