    Ok Here working on another project trying to learn this stuff. I have defined a 3/8" endmill. I know this size will work as I have seen other CNC guys use 3/8" endmill.
    If I put 1/4" in it will generate the entire toolpath.

    If you have a min and see where my error is sure would help me out. Thanks

    If you look at the last pic which is the toolpath the cutter is not going into the end of the pocket. Not sure why?

    I’m not seeing anything obvious, post a picture of the tool settings from the tool library. It’s the only thing I can think of. I’m pretty good with Fusion, but I taught myself, so there are probably some gaps in my knowledge

    Yea I am trying to teach myself this. I am wanting to do some gunsmithing and I really appreciate the help...

    Not that this is a big deal but do you know how to get a standard collet for holder in fusion?

    Don’t know dude

    I only thing I would try is turning optimum load in passes tab down, try small like .005

    I think in the tool library you can click on the holder tab and select different holders

    Not sure how it works, but it calculates cutter engagement during roughing adaptive tool paths to be most efficient

    truckeic,

    I've made the exact same part (as you have shown above) with a 3/8" EM with zero issues.

    The only difference I can see is that you have zero lead in/out, and also I selected a predrill/entry point when I did it (I pre-drilled a hole specifically for that purpose).

    PM

    I will try and do a predrill hole. But everything looks correct...

    If you're so inclined, send me your f3d model via PM and I'll take a look at it.
