    Hello everybody

    As we work in our firm with Inventor anyway, we are now considering getting InventorCAM?
    To try it out I have downloaded a demo version and installed it in our Inventor 2011
    First of all, do you also have so many crashes with your CAM software?

    Now my proper question:
    I have small stainless steel wheels (d=65mm), that I have to process with an embossing on the lateral area.
    For this job, I take a graver in a high speed spindle and a 4-axis.

    But I don’t know how to make InventorCam engrave onto the lateral area and turn the part at the same time around the 4axis.
    Or do I have to use the handling?

    Hello
    Yes exactly, you need a 4 or 5x postprocessor and then you simply create a profile job.
    With the geometry selection first select the function handling and then over multi-chain the fond.
    The zero point should be positioned in the centre.

    I don’t think it will work with the simply profile job.
    The structure must be thinned and is almost 1mm deep.
