"Trochoidal Turning" in Pro/NC


"Trochoidal Turning" in Pro/NC

Hi folks,

After some months investigating solutions I learned a lot about other
CAM systems and how they do things. I also learned some nasty marketing
tactics employed by CAx vendors and that sometimes the things are
wrapped with a nice cover but in the core they are all alike. That being
said, I created a small video showing Creo Elements/Pro 5 profile
turning toolpaths applied in a complex groove so that you can get the so
called "Trochoidal Turning" effect such as shown in Unigraphics NX and
Sandvik video. Please check this out at Sandvik website:

This video below shows how to make this in Pro/NC or Creo Elements/Pro.
It can be done in all Pro/NC versions as well. "Trochoidal Turning" in
Siemens NX is NOT a dedicated toolpath as it seems but rather a series
of profiles offseted with reversed lead in / lead out moves / cut

Enjoy it!
