C-axis surface milling

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a PVC part in a live tool lathe with a C-axis. It has a bore contour that I would like to rough with a live ball mill for reasons of chip control. Is it possible and, if so, what process could I use to mill the ID surface while spinning the C-axis and following the X-axis out (+) from the center?

I am using X9.

Thanks for the response. While that worked it was far less efficient than I had hoped.
