Wrap Pocketing Strategy Question

Hi everyone,

 

I was trying to learn the wrap pocketing operation but came to a situation I am not sure how to handle. Here's a link to the file and I am looking for a way to machine the highlighted pocket.

The main issue is that the Wrap function and 2D Pocket (or 2D Contour) don't cooperate with each other when it comes to 360 degree contour selections. As such, we need to do some model tweaking for the purposes of selection:

In the image above, I've essentially changed the model into a 170 degree feature and used Pattern > Rotate (with 2X instances) to achieve this:

I've attached the file for your review

Thank you Seth!

I was supposing this workaround but was wondering whether I don't do something the right way to make it more straightforward

Nope, it was nothing you were doing wrong, it's just limitations of the Wrap function itself.

Out of curiosity - why when "Stock to Leave" check mark is unchecked there are errors in the toolpath although the values are currently at 0?
Also I tried other CAM software (I don't know if it's ok to name it here) that I used to work with before Fusion and the limitations of the wrap operation were very similar.

I am not seeing any errors when Stock to Leave is turned off, can you describe what you're seeing?

Yesterday it was giving me an error with yellow exclamation mark. Today The toolpath generated after just ticking off the Stock to Leave box is this: https://a360.co/47tFgqY
