Lathe facing with a boring bar

Good morning Forum!

 

I am making a part on a lathe and I wish to face it off with a boring bar from the inside out and there appears to be no easy way of doing it. What am I missing?

Hi @mreigle

Please look at the attached file. Is this what you are trying to achieve?

Thank you kind sir! That is exactly what I wanted. I tried a very long time with profile turning myself but I could not get it to work.

That strategy only works if it's the top face. Anything below that surface and you have to 'Allow Axial Grooving'. The problem then gets trickier. When the tool exits the outside edge of the boss being faced, it tries to wrap around the corner with the trailing edge of the insert. There's work arounds but It would be easier if the Fusion team would just allow inside-out on the standard facing path.

Can you tell how did you create this toolpath option.

@aadityainnovations you can use inside profile finishing direction back to front with radial grooving on.

@andyw This feature was added to turning face operations in the latest update that recently went out.
