    Default EDGECAM ROUGH MILL STARTING WITH AN HELIX MESSAGE

    Hi! Im machining a contour with a small diameter tool using a ROUGH MILL with WAVEFORM strategy. The toolpath is starting on the piece with an helix motion. The setting gives us two option: pre drilled hole and helix. How can i make the toolpath ROUGH MILL WITH WAVEFORM strategy to start from outside to inside ? Thanks in advance !

    Hi!

    I think your option "stock type" isn`t choosed, if you choose "Current Stock" it should be starting outside of the part. IF you have inserted a stock

    See my attached picture.

    Hi Robert and thank you very much for your reply. I have tried as you suggested but i still can not get the toolpaths to start from outside to inside . Surely there is something that im missing. Here are attached some files for your consideration.EDGECAM  ROUGH MILL STARTING WITH  AN HELIX MESSAGE-helix-approach-png

    Are you using a boundary? Try without.

    If you only want to rough the outside, then pick 2 boundaries:-
    The 1st the part profile
    The 2nd a rectangle bigger than the billet - it's size really doesn't matter as long as the cutter can easily fit between it and the billet. You will have manually create this.

    Play with boundary options (in/out etc) in roughing to see different results.
