1.Can I define a toolcompensated toolpath for lathe because my controller doesn't allow me to use G41 or G42?
2.I want to curl a profile on a cilinder and generate a 4-axes toolcompensated NC-program. What do I do ?
Answer1: Yes! Select the profile and use option "Conversion to profile without compensation" in the Lathe-menu. Click here to download a video.
Answer2: Define your 2D-profile (p.e a Cam) in the XY-plane. Then select "Convert 2D profile to 4-Axes on cylinder" in the NC jobs-menu. This option will generate a 100% correct toolpath without using G41 or G42. Click here to download a video.
