Hi, I am new to this forum so please excuse me if this has already been answered.
I am trying to machine a simple 2 blade helical impella on a 3 +1 machine. I have tried various options on our X4 software, we have the 5-axis add on. But when I do the simulation it either gouges or machine straight though part of it on the simulation. The final component is to be machined from inconel so I cannot afford heavy cuts. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
The original model was drawn using inventor put that seemed difficult to handle, I then redrew it in solidworks saving as an iges file and that seems to help a little, I can now seperate surfaces. I just dont seem to be able to get it to do what I want. If it helps I could post an image or the file.
Cheers Chris M
