    Default Gouge

    I break 1/32 carbide ball nose bits too much.
    I don't think it is speed or depth of the tool, I think it is running into material at some point.
    on the cut that it broke I started with 1/16 BN, Z level rough and Equidistant, not leaving any in allowance in either cut.
    then the next with the 1/32 I used the Advance rough using the rest roughing. and entered the previous cutter.
    so I read about the gouge but havn't figured out how to use this. I don't know what to look for, But is that what I need to learn to find where my problem is? I assume that is what that is for.
    In the help it says:
    Navigation

    To access the Advanced Options for Gouge Checking dialog box:


    •Click Advanced at the bottom of the Gouge Check tab.

    I havn't found yet, the only thing I see is in the feature setup

    so i am kind of lost, is there a video to show this?

    Does it have to be a Carbide tool? What are you cutting? Sometimes it is better to use an HSS cutter, Carbide are very brittle so snap more easy than an HSS tool which wil have a bit more flex to it.
