How to create a chamfer on x and Z

I have a nasty burr on the blue edge shown on the picture and I want to take a 45deg chamfer mill and cut a small chamfer.

So the cutter would only move in Z and X. I have tried a regular 2D chamfer but it doesn't work. What can I do to do this?

It would of course be best if you can angle the part in either a fixture or using a 4th axis but as it doesn`t look to be a very big angle possibly the "Trace" toolpath will do a good enough job for you.

Or you can maybe try a 3D toolpath like the 3D Contour, just ideas 🙂

3D contour says I cant use that tool. I tried the trace toolpath but it doesn't want to move the tool over. see picture. I tried the stock to leave and chamfer options but both of them had the center of the tool directly on the part. But trace is giving me an angled tool path. What do you suggest?

Are you trying to put the chamfer on in OP1 Undercut or OP2 Angle?

If you want it in OP1, set your Trace to this:

I was trying for OP1, because it might be rotated it OP2 and not look even.

Oh the sideways composition was set to center. I think that is it.

Alright, the image above should get you what you're looking for. That said, I'd encourage you to use a bull or ball nose endmill and use a 3d toolpath such as Adaptive or Parallel to rough off excess material, you're taking quite the cut with that chamfer mill (unless of course, it's a soft material or you know the tool is good for it)
