Stupid question

4 posts in this topic

Hello All, I feel stupid for asking this but here it goes. I'm programming for a horizontal setup with top view facing down the tombstone with front as B00. I have a countour that is at a angle 10 degrees off of 0, I'm expecting the tombstone to want to index 10 degress and mill a straight path in Z. What I'm getting is a change in Z with no index,what am I forgetting?????

 

Thanks

you need to create a tool plane at 10 degrees.

the simplest way is the Planes/Rotate command

Yes I don't know why I was fighting that idea.

 

Thanks for the help!

Make certain you are rotating the toolplane and not setting it as a custom WCS (World Coordinate System). B)
