End Milling Tool Path XY Bounds

Unread post by Andre » Mon Feb 09, 2015 1:08 pm

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.

But there I couldn't find any way to define tool path X,Y boundaries, like in Machines Zone all options greyed out, others are the same

Hi Andre,
I am not sure what your parts looks like. But you always have the option to create a sketch and end mill the sketch.

Hi Andre,
Are you machining a sketch?
