I'm trying to mill a half sphere into a block of 304 SS. I have a half sphere drawn but it won't let me do anything with it. can anyone point me in the right direction on how to post a program for this.

thank you very much

I assume you have a legit version.... otherwise can't create NCI file. Anyway, create surface then pick toolpath.

yes it is a legit version. we have Vel II. when i go to create a surface it won't select anything. all i can do is delete it or check the element

I just created a half sphere and cut it; can you give details about your design so we can direct you..?

its a block of 304 SS. 3.25 x 2 x .75. it has a radius of .781 right in the middle of the block. and the center of the sphere is .191 above the part. it also has a .06 radius around the top of the sphere
