Axial Grooving Tool

Hey guys, 

Is it possible to simulate such tools or create them as tools?

You can create tools similar to that, but it won't have that radial sweep as shown in your image. Create an External Grooving Tool and orient it 90 degrees:

Thats the Point, i need the Radial sweep, because otherwise i get a collision in simulation.

There's no way to create it without a collision. Well, that's not entirely true, as sometimes you can define it thin enough to not flag a collision.

We make no false boasts about the quality of our lathe tool definitions, we know they're grossly lacking at the moment. But, we ARE working on that and one day hope to offer a better experience

It would be great if lathe tool definitions were improved. Tobi is not the only one wanting this... 🙂

 

Thank you! James

Hi Tobi,

I was using exactly the same style of tool yesterday with exactly the same problem!

I agree! I've got a Doosan Lynx sitting right behind me, there have been many tools that I just couldn't define properly.
