    Training on Horizontal Mills

    absolute technologies, I developed my horizontal program and Im backploting thru it and the tools go thru the fixture on B180 and B270, is that just what back plotting does when your verifying the toolpath...

I work for this company a while ago that ran nothing but mazak hmc, and their Gcode is all macros. it really crazy!. but its a really clean way to run code for production. I almost have their code down....i should post it on here so you guys can see it

    CIRCLE 5 AXIS TOOLPATH and POCKET MILL CUTTING

    Colin, First off thanks for the reply. I always have my chain arrow pointing clockwise which is climb cutting, I don't have a problem with basic tool paths dealing with 2d parts. but I just notice that with the tool paths Surface Rough, Surface Finish, Surface High Speed and Multi Axis even though you have the chain arrow pointing in a clockwise direction "climb cutting" it while have the tool path go in a counter clockwise cut "conventional cut". but all these tool paths do provide a option to select "conventional cut" which will then force the tool path to cut in a clockwise direction "climb cutting".
  15. IN MULTIAXIS TOOLPATH SELECTING THE OPTION CIRCLE 5 AXIS, PROCEEDING WITH ALL THE OPTIONS IT PROVIDES IN PARAMETERS IT DOSENT ALLOW YOU TO SELECT THE DIRECTION FOR THE TOOL TO CUT IN CLIMBING, IT JUST CUTS CONVENTIONAL. WHY? OR POCKET TOOLPATH WHEN YOU SELECT THE CHAINING TO PROCEED IN CLIMB CUT DIRECTION IT CUTS IN CONVINTIONAL, ENLESS YOU GO TO THE OPTION IN PARAMETERS "CUT PARAMETERS" SELECT CONVENTIONAL FOR THE MACHING DIRECTION. WHY?
