Tutorials:-Working with Power MILL "PART V" Toolpath Leads and Links

0 0 Intermediate
Links To provide for more efficient movement of the tool across the component the link moves that connect adjacent tool tracks can be defined in several different ways. Short/Long Threshold - This defines the distance limit up to which the Short - Links apply. Any move from the end of a tool track to the start of the next, which exceeds this distance is defined as a Long - Link move. For Short links the available options include Safe Z, Incremental, Skim, On Surface, Stepdown, Straight, and Circular Arc. For Long links the available options include Safe Z, Incremental, and Skim. Safe links apply only at the start and end of a toolpath the available options being Safe Z, Incremental, and Skim. For applications where a machine control system will permit arc fitting of rapid moves the Arc Fit Rapid Moves box can be ticked along with a suitable Radius based on the active tool diameter TDU (Of particular benefit to High Speed Machining). •Activate the toolpath 1_1 created earlier in the Leads section. •Set the Leads In and Out to None, if not already set. Press Apply.

Z Heights Skim and Plunge distance provide variable control of rapid move heights within a component. These operate in conjunction with Safe Z and Start Z to minimize slow and unnecessary movement of the tool in fresh air while machining the component form. Skim distance – An incremental distance above the model at which rapid moves occur from the end of one tool track to the start of the next. The tool rapids across the model clearing the highest point along its route by the Skim value. Plunge distance – An incremental distance above the local component surface where a downward rapid movement of a tool changes to plunge rate.

Tutorials:-Working with Power MILL "PART IV" Finish Machining Strategies.

0 0 Intermediate
Raster, Radial, Spiral, and Pattern Finishing. Introduction. This section will cover Finishing strategies created by the downward projection of a Pattern, which include four types, Raster, Radial, Spiral and (user defined) Pattern. PowerMILL generates the toolpaths by projecting a wireframe form down the Z-axis onto the model. The standard patterns applied in Raster, Radial, and Spiral are achieved by entering values directly into the Finishing Form. The resultant Pattern can be displayed by selecting Preview before executing the command by selecting Apply. The Pattern option requires a user-defined geometric form (active Pattern), which is projected down Z onto the model as a tool path.

Finishing strategies machine the actual component form and where applicable, follow on from the Area Clearance operation. Suitable values are required to control the accuracy and amount of excess material to be left on a component by a tool path. The parameters used for this purpose are called Thickness and Tolerance

Don't worry about the orientation just simply rotate it through your mouse. and If you are thinking of wrong axis direction than just follow these steps:-

This problem Generally occurs due to missing Duct processor Configuration, Duct Post or processor is generally used for offline program generation for specific CNC Machine. while post processor is for Direct NC program generation when the machine is connected to System.
