I would like to use an index drill as a drill and boring bar. I can set it up like a drill in my tool library, but does anyone know the proper way to call it out being that its has offsets for a drill and also offsets as a boring bar. HAAS has a video saying you can do this, but they don't really explain much beyond that. The devil is in the details. - The process would be call out the Drill as TOOL X with offset X and drill hole. - Then call out "drill" again, but it's actually a boring bar now. It would have the offset of a boring bar. The designation would still be drill but operating as a boring bar. This gets really confusing. I almost think I have to do the tool as a boring bar separately using the insert on the outside like the tip of a boring bar. Thanks, Steve
So playing with Lathe and on my way to something good I think :head scratch: , I have some tool library questions ... Way different than milling I see. I have some internal profiles almost bowl or cone shaped and got some new tooling ..... BUT no idea whats next - I am not sure where to start the process of designing these bars, how to put them in the library as they must not be standard library Iscar tooling. Bar #s A20R SVJCR - 11 A16R SVJCR - 11 INSERT # VCGT-221-AS IC20 I probably should have just searched this topic but we will see ...... Thanks in advance ...
