  8. Hi Everyone . I'm having a problem with chatter on hass machine using all my tools . It just started yesterday . It real shows up when your face milling not so much when your surfacing . I checked for backlash on X and Y and it's .001 . So I'm thinking it may be the drawbar ? The machine is a Vf 1 .... 2004 . It's not the tool because I switched tools with other machine and still have the problem . Thanks for any help .

    Waterline toolpath

    Hass machines are pre 2000 .Still using a floppy disk .Machine setting is set at .025 . As I understand it corner rounding will start .025 from corner . Mastercam will set accuracy .

    Waterline toolpath

    I would use a contour. Just create a silhouette boundary to get arcs to drive the toolpath. Increase the tolerance to get larger arcs...maybe 0.002? Might be a better way...? Thanks goooose that did the trick . Like This Back to top Quote MultiQuote Report
