    Question Milling an angle chamfer around slot with ballnose mill

    Started using solidcam in addition to solidworks becouse it was confident and now i have run into an issue. I have 40 mm ball mill and pretty old Mori Seiki MV-65 machine. Main issue txt files that get post processed are too large(over the memory capacity of the machine) is there any way to make the toolpath files smaller?

    Check to see if Solidcam will output arcs when calculating tool path, otherwise you'll have to convert them yourself.
    this tool path was easy to convert. This is the first slot:

    Thanks a day late but still thank you. Made the slot a bit rough set 1mm step but it was okay.
