View Full Version : 3d contouring possible with a roundover bit?

I was wondering if Solidcam lets you to use a concave, radius shaped cutter (like a router rounderover bit) to cut a radius of a smaller size along a straight horizontal edge?

It seems to me that it could be done in a similar way to contouring with a ballnose cutter and produce a smoother finish in less time.

So far I can only figure out how to cut a radius of equal size to the roundover bit!
