I have MasterCam X3 and I am trying to cut a groove in a cylinder that represents the cavity for a spring.
I have modeled the part in Catia and imported it using and IGES file. I used the toolpath, "Rotary 4 Axis" and it is picking up the profile that I want but it wants to cut both sides of the groove. I just want it to cut the face that is outboard which would give me a helical groove that resembles a mold for a spring.
I am a beginner using MasterCam (6 months) and this is my first 4 axis job. Most of my errors result in clicking a button or something simple. Appreciate the help, I am not getting anything from the manuals that I have.
