Boring toolpath Problem

Hello all!

I am doing a simple boring tool path.

When the tool gets to the end of the cut it backs off then feeds out at the same feed rate it fed in instead of rapid retracting. This wastes a huge amount of time. Am I missing something?

This may sound like a dumb response, but could you share your file? It's a simple enough thing to just test on a simple model, but I'm not getting a feed retract, only rapids.

Also, what post processor are you using?

Oh, that's why I couldn't replicate it on a sample piece, I had a default value changed.

The setting that controls this "Direct Movement" is your "Safe Distance", on the Linking tab (yours was set to .080"):

It has some interplay between your Clearance (on Radii tab) as well as your Lead-Out movement.

Personally, I've set my Safe Distance to a much lower value (.01"). Experiment with what you're comfortable with.. 🙂

Thanks Seth that did the trick. I have never paid any attention to that setting before now so this was educational for me.
