  • Advice on Groove Diameter - Auto Circle

    Please let me know how to create an auto circle groove diameter that doesn't hit the edges. I know there has to be a prehit/retract that you can put in somewhere. Thank you.

    you either want to modify your prehit/retract distance (F10-->PROBING), or make the moves into circular moves.

    sometimes adding a few more points to reduce the distance between points helps too.

    Shorten the retract distance and use more points than normal with circular moves. If you’re using Clearance Cube, make sure that feature is turned off and add your own moves if needed.

    Use the F10 key to pull up the parameter settings dialogue window and select the motion tab. There is where you can change the prehit and retract settings.

    1/2 groove width - 1/2 tip diameter = is my rule of thumb the maximum prehit and retract I use in grooves

    Use circular moves as said before, adjust your prehit retract as needed.
    Also if you use avoidance moves make sure that is off and add move points at start and end of feature so it won't crash.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet, but using circular moves, and adjusting your prehit retract should help a lot.
