mastercam 3 depths automatically setmastercam 3 depths automatically setfusion full helixfusion full helixi have a 13 tooth indexable insert threadmill for 24tpi and im going 1.5 inch deep 

fusion want to helix the whole way down constant 

 

in mastercam i tell it the full depth and how many teeth on my insert and it maximizes the depths of cuts evenly

Sadly, no. Pretty much the only way is to make multiple toolpaths, doing the math between each one as needed. Far from ideal.

 

I will make a ticket on this and see if I can get the dev team to consider improving this area of threading.

I'm running into the same problem with a thread mill with 9 teeth.

I'm running into the same problem with a thread mill with 9 teeth.  Fusion still wants to treat this as a single point thread mill.  NC Generator on Iscar's ITA has the threaded hole with 2 passes at 37 minutes and Fusion has it at 2h:37m:33s.  

This needs some attention, especially for a shop that wants to maximize their production

Would you be able to share your Fusion file here?

This is a 5.75-12 thread 3.00" deep.  Programmed in MasterCam and Gibbs Cam it compensates for the insert length.

Sadly, the only solution we have (and it's a royal pain in the....) is to duplicate the toolpath as many times as needed, do the math between the pitch, the flute length and top/bottom heights and fudge it that way.

I've added this thread to the existing ticket (CAM-18306) but I'm not holding my breath on getting it fixed, as there are other areas that we are focusing on (although tangentially related to this issue). I'll see if I can get some interest in looking at this.

I can get what I need from Iscar's Tool Advisor.  Just thought there was something I was overlooking.  I have been told that Autodesk is working on new updates on Cam side.

We are working on CAM updates, but (sadly) this isn't on the list at the moment.
