Re: Variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates

Probably my first impression is all wrong and not complete because I haven't mastered TopSolid yet.
Mark, thank you again! :wink:

Re: Variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates

I don't have VoluMill licensed, so cannot check if it could be a solution :roll: So what would be the point of specifying Material for the stock part if it is not used in any way for calculation of Feeds and Speeds? :| It doesn't look intelligent at all when tool move at constant m/mm and RPM, is it?

Re: Variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates

Thanks. Will try to dig in this directions as well.... Just watched this video... rGIycpJ0fho The guy in this video using VoluMill strategy in End Mill operation and in the end he has G-code with variable F (feedrate) values, but not Spindle speed variation though. At least it is something. Do you t...

Variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates

Doing Side Milling, Pocketing and so on, is TopSolid capable of performing machining with variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates? For example when there is small amount of material on toolpath obviously you can increase feedrate and on the other hand when mill goes deep into material feedrate slows down ...

Re: Milling of the bottom side

Hello, Mark! It looks like you are the only one who is visiting this site and keeping it afloat. Thank you Mark, for pointing me in right direction. Tried to reposition to a new document and had to select again machine, install vice and placing part. It is not a big deal though, but could it be ther...

Milling of the bottom side

Hello! Please, need help!

In my milling project, once 5 sides are machined, what should I do in order to machine remaining bottom side?

Thank you!

End Milling Tool Path XY Bounds

When doing End Milling, is it possible to restrict movements on X and Y within some predefined bounds? Help says it is possible in Geometry option. Snap 2015-02-09 at 13.59.10.png But there I couldn't find any way to define tool path X,Y boundaries, like in Machines Zone all options greyed out, othe...

Problem with the Head movement (XYZsolid), When add translation on X only, it is working, once movement on Y added, Test Machine Axis stops working for all including B and C. The ca...

Re: How to use custom made Machine

Is anywhere on the net I could see step-by-step CAM instructions/tutorials for TopSolid7 in general and Machine creation/usage in particular? Just don't want to waste time guessing :roll:

Thanks again for your help!

Re: How to use custom made Machine

Thank you! Will dig in this direction. It's a pity that it wasn't explained in the Help PDF TopSolidCam_Tutorial-Machine.pdf at all. As well as how to use Numerical Control for example. Do I need just a Machine model that I created to be able to simulate machining or it works as Machine+Postprocesso...
