Toolpath to use


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to machine a cylinder on a tombstone setup. In the image, you can see I used a multiaxis flowline to machine the front face of the cylinder. I'm happy with that tool path but I would like some advice on the next toolpath. I want to do some type of multiaxis swarf surfacing. I highlighted the surfaces I intend to swarf in red. I've tried a few tool paths but can't get anything close. Could someone give me a hand on parameters to get an output about the B axis?

Am I missing something?

I would position the tombstone straight on, run a flowline as far as I could staying off the flat.......use a smaller ball to get closer to the flat floor, then a 2D Swept to blend the remaining to the square corner...

No reason for multi-axis on that part that I can see....all 2D/3D
