DISPLAY "DRILL DEPTH" LENGTH

Mastercam does this, and it's very helpful. No reason Fusion can't show it in the window, if not also on the planes image on the model.

I admit, I'm not sure what it is you're actually looking to have displayed, and where it would be displayed 🤔

I just realized I typod and meant to say "drill tip depth"

say you program a drill to go -1. , and enable "tip comp". Without going into View toolpath or simulating it, I don't know what the final depth of the drill is! It seems fusion thinks all drills come to a sharp, when they certainly don't in real life (usually making a hole 10-15 thou deeper than intended).
All our tap holes are called out MAX HOLE, so Id like to see that the tip length on my drill is theoretically 0.037", but I can program to -1.025 to get it very close but still be on the safe side!

Are you using these 2 options?

Yes, I guess most people haven't used mcam before. This is what Im looking for programming2C78B_0-1691493773430.png

Hi @programming2C78B,

 

I understand what you're saying but I program a lot, but for what reason do you want to see that value?

If your body length (length below holder) is long enough and you program with fixturing then all kind of collisions will be detected.

This is not currently available in Fusion. 

You could however calculate the tip length using the following formula:

DTL=D/2/Tan(A/2)

Where DTL is the Drill Tip Length (in)
D is the drill diameter (in)
A is the tip angle (degrees)

To calculate a drill tip length, divide the diameter by 2, then divide again by the value of the tangent of half the tip angle.


You could also post out just the drill cycle and look at the "ZMIN" value in the tool list to see the drill's final depth.
