Tool Library Preview Wrong?

Not sure if it was the latest update or not - but it now appears that my tapered ball endmills are showing very incorrect proportions in the tool preview graphic on the right side of the "Cutter" tab.

 

The scale is off by a factor of 2.  It is throwing off all of the simulation previews?

Yes, there does appear to be a "bug" doing Taper Ball Nose tools, as I am not an Autodesk employee all I can offer is a "workaround" that at least shows the correct shape of the tool, see image below.

Done a bit of a video with the "workaround" mentioned and it does seem to do the job, huge PITN, hopefully when the Autodesk folks are back at their desks we will get this sorted properly in quick time 🙂

There are probably better/easier ways around this and hopefully someone else will post some 🙂 🙂 🙂

This is certainly bizarre. It doesn't look like one needs to change tool type; simply changing flute count and/or Bull/Ball (tapered type) seems to trigger the resulting tool..

I've opened up CAM-44401 to investigate this issue

I'm getting the same issue. Any ETA on when this will be fixed?

We're working on it, hope to have it out "soon". In the meanwhile, give this a view and see if you can workaround the issue:
