why are 3d printing moves showing up under milling

why are 3d printing moves showing up under milling

this happens between face opps and adaptive clearing

adaptive clearing and contours

and even sometimes between contours

also between pockets when programming different pockets.

most of the time they are small moves and do not interfere but other times the want to send the tool outside the machines capabilities.

the orange lines in the picture below is an example.

Hi,

because all machining operations in the screenshot are milling operations.
If you want to print in 3D, you must create the toolpaths under "Additive".

This may be a case of "rogue elements" creeping in from another file, I've been seeing a few reports of this. Do they remain after you restart Fusion and open your file again?

Do you have any other files open?

Can you share your Fusion file?

I HAVE 2 OTHER FILES OPEN BUT THIS HAPPENS REGARDLESS OF OTHER FILES BEING OPEN

SOMETIMES I CAN GET THEM TO GO AWAY IF I REORDER OPERATIONS. BUT ONLY DO THIS IF THE 3D MOVE CASES THE TOOL TO EXCEED THE MACHINE. IT POSTS AS A RAPID MOVE WHEN I POST THE PROGRAM

That file does not contain any toolpaths. Please save your work and then share the link again.

Are you referring to these lines?

Those are not lines from Additive. It appears that there is a bug in the Simulation, those should be displayed and categorized as Rapid/Positioning moves.

We've logged this bug as CAM-43999

Yeah, that's where they should be. They are positioning moves from one operation to the next.

If you're running out of Z travel because of them, you can reduce your Clearance Height:
