I am using an aggregate to perform cutting on 4 sides of a entrance door

When I create a work plane the post outputs the correct C axis value.

However when I want to work on the top of the part  to use the aggregate for a scoring blade, I cant get

the correct c axis angle. It only puts out C0

the post is set so that if an aggregate is used the will be a C output

Any ideas how I can get the C axis output when on the top plane?

wish I could help but I can tell u a good aggregate post makes all the difference. After weeks of messing with that stuff, we purchased one and right out of the box it did everything I could have hoped for and more. I am no fan of paying for posts but sometimes you save alot of time and money in the end. Good luck

My guess would be to create a rotated top plane to the angle of the cut you want to make for the scoring blade. This is OK for 1-2 cuts on the top plane but if you are doing many angle cuts then creating all those planes is going to become a chore. I created a router post many, many years ago that looked at the angle of the single contour scoring line and output the angle as a head rotation. There is a post command to calculate the angle of motion. I would never remember how I did this....
