2D Contours and Boring Tool Path is all starting from bottom to top.

Hey Guys, 

 

I am trying to cut out some pieces of plastic with multiple ramped even step down passes but it starts from the bottom of the material and steps "up" which would definitely break my bit as its going to plunge into the full depth of the material. Is there a way I can change it so that it can start from the top of the material and even step down into the material?

Hi @ahossainB7G9F Make sure you are using the turning profile profile  roughing for this.

Can you share a screen grab of what you are making and list what toolpath you are using?

 

Thanks,


Kevin

both 2D Contour and Bore are not really traditional roughing operations that have an up/down option.  As long as your Z is pointing up away from the part your feed plane where it starts cutting should be above the part.

 

A 3D adaptive on the other hand will cut at its max allowed depth then step back up.  

 

As Kevin said a screen shot would really help here.

@ahossainB7G9F Just checking in with you on this one. Did you ever get this problem resolved? I ran across something similar on a different thread. The user had the simulation playing in reverse so it looked like the tool was starting at the bottom and going to the top.

To be honest, I believe it may have to do something with the way the part was laid on the material plane. Im not sure but I redid another file and it was cutting fine from top to bottom.
