Turning the OD with a boring bar

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with an issue in Fusion 360.

First of all, I am new in terms of turning. I recently came across with a part that I am trying to use a boring bar to do an OD profile. However, Fusion does not machine everything on the profile (I already change the clockwise option on the tool) as you can see on the screenshots. I tried to change many things, but without any result.

Would you be able to share your Fusion file here?

@bruno3S6JX have you tried checking the "machine undercuts" parameter in the passes tab?

Hi everyone,

I got it. After a call with the support, I managed to get it to work properly.

It was a simple think that I tried before, but I don't know why it didn't work.

I just created a sketch of the profile and selected in the toolpath under Model->Model Contour.

However, I didn't got it running in the -X axis like I wanted to so I had to Manual invert the code to the negative side.

Can't find what you're looking for? Ask the community or share your knowledge.
