Cutting keyway

Postby 1351013427 » Fri Nov 12, 2021 7:52 am

Hi i'm looking for advise on cutting a keyway on a shaft, i want to do a 3/16" keyway with a 3/16" cutter so just do a full width slot.
i also don't have any smaller end mills for pocketing is out of the question right now.
the only way i can figure it out at the moment is use the engrave option to cut on the line.

Thank you for any help

SLOTTING, under the 2 1/2 Axis tab should enable you to do this:-
