Finish Contour machining can promote the machining speed in the same horizontal plane with Z-axis invariable. Besides, partial contour can also be carried out via limiting the machining range and depth. Tool-path is fitted into arc which reduces the G-codes and improves machining efficiency. This is mainly used for high-speed milling machines.
Menu【Toolpath > Surface Finish > Finish contour】
1 Select surface.
2 Click Menu【Toolpath > Surface Finish > Finish contour】
3 Set the parameters, click OK button.
Total depth of Machining: the actual total depth of machining required
Max depth of Surface: the max depth generated automatically;
Stepdown: distance between contours (the smaller, the more
Clearance: you can set surface remain which is the shortest distance between the original surface and surface after carving.
Direction for closed contour: Climb is clockwise, Conventional is anti-clockwise.
Order: you may choose Top to Btm or Btm to Top.
Top to Btm Btm to Top
Contour path’s three transition ways between layers:
1.High-speed machining: arc transition ensures the whole machining at high speed without slowing down and this greatly supports high-speed milling.
2.Ramp transition: ramp transition increases machining speed of general milling.
3. Line transition: line transition prevents over-cutting.
