    Racking my brain as to why you would want to do it that way.

    EDM 4 TH AXIS

    I could see much difference in that flat area so my file is the tapered part. With that much angle make sure you use half hard wire and reduce your tension and use big flush cups.

    There is some screwy stuff I think in that file. Here is another DXF file that I think is correct. Only thing is that its a cross section of the part where the bottom is at Z.750 and the top is at Z1.500. It doesn't matter as long as you have your program plane set at Z.750 and whatever the Charmilles needs for the top at Z1.500. The angle is the same. I only gave you the wireframe. Make sure that the radius is what you want. I used .172015 R. Esprit was creating an isometric radius because it was interpreting 2 radius. One was something like .154 R. If that is the one you need then filet it and create new branch lines connecting them. 10-1245-134-ins WIRE 4 TH AXIS OLD VER.dxf

    I cant say for certain but maybe the taper is too steep maybe?

    I don't know if Mastercam wire has this or not. It saves time from creating wireframes if the solid is accurate.

    Its hard for me to go back and use MCWire after using Esprit. Messes with my head. In Esprit all I do is select those faces and wire path it.

    10-1245-134-ins WIRE 4 TH AXIS OLD VER.step I just split the solid at z.75 and z1.5 and extended the top to to clear the part. As long as you set your planes right on the wire the shape is the same. I created branch points and thats how you should sync it.

    that will work

    TAPER ON WIRE EDM s

    Master80, you probably already done but since i was thinking of it I would do it this way. Cut the 4 axis taper first setting the bottom of your die land at Z1.300. It will cut the taper and the straight wall. I would then chain the top at Z1.500 to cut the .200 land and put a stop where the straight part is and dry run single block it to corner radius so you don't wire the straight side twice. taperlandcut.dxf
