Face Groove Tool Back Clearance


Recommended Posts

You can make an accurate 3D model of your face groove tool in MC2019

I don't know if that data will be associative to a face groove toolpath or not.

I haven't tried it, but I'd be surprised if it was as we are still in early days for 3D tool support in the lathe module.

However, in MC2018 you can set a min/max  start diameter for a face groove on the Groove Roughing Parameters page.

You can get those values from the tool manufacturer's catalogue.

I usually close them up a little from the manufacture's numbers, just to be safe.

I believe this feature goes back to X9 or so.
