What is wrong with 2d Adaptive

I like the 2d Adaptive tool path it helps my machine cut a lot faster.

Yesterday the toolpath worked fine, but i had too much step over, so i wanted to reduce by optimal load great...tool path generated fine....but I had a little too much air machining so I reduced the size of my closed chain a little bit.

Bam no tool path I went back to original size and no tool path, deleted tool path original size no tool path.....

please help?

Set 17 2d adaptive 9 

Never mind tried again and bingo generated?????

Oh great I finally fluked the lead in positions to where I wanted them (not sure how)...

So then I change tools from 1/2 flat end mill to 1/4 flat end mill....

Guess what lead in positions change.......Geez

Thank you for responding.

I did a full redesign for a number of different reasons.   This was the first time I really considered designing to make the development of tool paths easier.

The big thing was removing places where a line ends where two surfaces blend together.

Bingo 2 D adaptive works well.

Thanks to your help and many others I finally have a machining work flow that  works great.   Fast, no machine overloading, more accuracy, easy to parametrically change design.

I seem to be a very slow learner.

btw i would post the file but it is back more than a few versions now and will be difficult to locate

again thank you much
