3D Chamfer?

3D Chamfer?

Hello. I used Flow with a 4mm ball endmill to chamfer or deburr parts before the latest version changed this toolpath. What's the best way to do this now in the latest version?


I see two possibilities:

1. Use a ball mill with a 3-axis toolpath.

2. Use a chamfer mill with a 4-axis toolpath.


Any ideas on how this could be done?

3D scallop is what I'd do. You'll never get those actual sharp corners.

The issue actually is that you've selected the "top level" component for your Setup, so this includes your Stock model.

Selecting just the model to machine is what you need to do. That said, the new Flow toolpath does have some issues with this part, as it automatically aligns to either the U or V, not both:


I would go into Preferences and turn on the Old Flow toolpath, and you'll get this:



or, just use the Scallop toolpath that was suggested above 🙂

I'm trying to do this in a single pass. I couldn't get either Flow or Scallop to do this.

Old Flow can do a one-pass result:
