Roll Around corners to specified radius

We have the option of rolling around the corners.


What about allowing the used to input a specified corner radius of sharp corner parts? ie when you select roll around sharp corner a field opens to specifiy the corner radius to apply to the sharp corner.


Anyone else find this useful?

If we're talking deburring then I find it useful; otherwise, I would think that any significant radius would be modeled in the part and become part of the tool path when the geometry was chosen.


In a previous CAM software I used one option was round sharp corners with the option of entering a radius; used it quite a bit as mentioned above with radius values on order of 0.005in.

That is exactly what I'm talking about. Just like 0.005-0.010"  Or what ever matches the customers or my part spec.

Old post, but I'm suprised that this still, 2018, isn't possible to do without modifying the model.

We often get solids from customers and just make a radius/deburring on all sharp corners with a setting in gibbscam.
With Fusion we now have to apply a fillet with 0,1mm radius on all edges

I asked for this probably around three years ago (maybe more) with the Gibbscam argument exactly in fact, and even using the Chamfer options as a parallel to the argument, but got no traction with the developers. Model modification is the only option.


Edit: ah I see this post is from three years ago. Might've been on the old HSMWorks forums even.

Does anyone know if it is already possible in the current version of fusion?

No, it is not.
