    Default Cannot produce radius

    Hello,
    I have a kidney shaped pocket 40mm wide and 40mm deep in the part Im machining. The pocket has a 10mm radius around the top edge. i have produced the slot to size but i cannot get the Edgecam to produce a radius around it. I cant seem to get the "Find Features" tab to recognise the radius separately from the pocket.
    Im currently using a 16mm endmill to produce the pocket if this helps.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Hello!

    Maby i don`t understand our problem, but if you have the latest software (2018R1) you can pick the solid face in a profiling cycle i think. Try that
    And if you use Cusp Hight, you can get the radius fine

    Post a pic if you can!

    What you would normally do is forget the radius and pocket the inside as normal then use a ball nose (10mm + in your case) and use flow surface cycle with blend between curves set. Select the radius all the way round, select the top edge chain and select the bottom edge chain and scan the radius.
