Here is my question....I have attached a part drawing for something that I would like to make. I have been playing around with different CAM software and am in the evaluation stage before I purchase my machine and all the software. My question is... What kind of cutter would you use for this operation? I am having a slight problem because of the curvature of what i am trying to mill. From looking through available options, I was thinking a lollipop cutter?
Also, what CAM software would you recommend to be able to do this one.....I know it's the age old question. I am doing a demo of Alibre Cam right now, because I like the fact that it is integrated...but I don't think I can do this with the standard version of CAM. It doesn't seem that they support all the different cutters.
