    Problems with custom tool file or data?

    What is the reason for doing it from the tool manager?
  2. Pioneer MX-8 extensions come in lengths up in 6,8 and 10", are .75 dia and you can get 8mm collets. Josh
  3. Is this more what you are looking for? I don't have any experience with feed mills so I can't really say if it's better than a straight contour. REST_ROUGHING-JT.mcam

    AutoRegen - CHook

    It just saves a click or 2 and helps keep you from accidentally hitting regen all not that I've ever done that

    Feed from chain to chain in contour

    That certainly works, I was hoping I could chain from the solid and control everything else with parameters. Thanks everyone

    JParis - We don't have 2019 yet, could you put that back up in 2018?

    Feed from chain to chain in contour

    I am cutting in a bunch of fins using a lot of step downs, example file above just to show tool path.

    The negative retract does keep the tool from lifting on the return for the next depth cut but not the chain to chain passes.

    That would be possible but I was hoping it could be done through a parameter or switch.
  12. Hello, I have a contour operation that is made of several chains and is using the "by depth" option for depth cuts. Is there anyway to create feed moves instead of rapid as goes from chain to chain? Getting rid of the short vertical moves between chains would be a plus. Would rather not draw the tool path or change the machine definition to eliminate all rapid moves. Thanks Josh contour_test.mcam
