Having trouble setting up a 2D chamfer with multiple passes.

hey everyone ...

 

so unfortunately my machine has a really weak spindle and also i'm cutting materials that tend to tear out and burr a lot. So ideally when chamfering a hole for a screwhead i would love to be able to cut in several passes. I haven't figured out how to approach this. Granted that for this small holes i could just use a drill operation using a chamfer mill but i also want to chamfer edges and other features so knowing how to do this would come in handy 😊

 

Could someone maybe give me some pointers, i tried searching the forum and youtube but couldn't really find anything usefull.

 

Here's a demo file with the manufâcturing space all set up:

You can adjust the end height by the desired step with a duplicated toolpath

This is one of those things that I wish Fusion offered, multiple depth passes on chamfer. Sure, we can duplicate the path and have the previous pass leave a small amount for the last pass to finish it, but this is silly. When chamfering harder materials, like SS and titanium, having the ability to have multiple depth passes would be greatly appreciated to lessen the wear on our cutters. And you could also say, well, if you want to have multiple depth passes, then use contour and if you are using a chamfer mill or spot drill, then you get the option to have multiple depths, even a radial finish pass, well then, how come 2d chamfer doesn't have these options. The algorithms must exist as they are present in contour, so just add them to 2d chamfer, and if you can't add these options, then just get rid of 2d chamfer all together, IMO.

hey sorry for the late reply ... the forum software wouldn't let me post yesterday for some reason.

 

@weber_dominicthx for this, i kinda knew i could do this by duplicating toolpaths .. i thought there was a way to set up multiple passes in one operation because as @leo.castellon said it's a bit silly not to have this option esepcially if you are working with harder materials and/or like me have a weak spindle who just can't handle a one pass.

We do have a task opened to investigate the feasibility of adding multiple depths to chamfer, and you're not alone in thinking this should be an option (it really should be). CAM-34654 is the task, and I've added this thread to the ticket.
