Anyone know of a way to reduce the width of cut incrementally without creating multiple toolpaths? We're using a double angle cutter to create a groove in a large ring and I would like to reduce the stepover as the cut gets deeper since the V groove gets larger (more tool engagement the deeper the cut).
Also has there ever been a way to make this entry transition between multiple passes better? Feeding directly in is going to suck with this tool:
I went a different route and roughed with a 2D Adaptive followed by a 3D Contour with an insert slot mill and finished with the HSS cutter with a single pass and a spring pass, one each top and bottom.
What I wanted would have meant four or five separate toolpaths which is what I wanted to avoid. Was hoping someone knew an expression or method to force an incremental pass width reduction but apparently not
