Mill Rotation Axis as Z-axis

Postby 1418766729 » Mon Apr 01, 2019 8:50 am

Hi All,

I started using RhinoCAM recently, does it support a 4-axis milling machine with Z-axis as rotary axis, if yes how should I set it up.

As the tool remains normal to axis of rotation, rotary axis for 4 axis milling can only be defined about X or Y axis.
Rotary axis can be defined about Z axis for 5 axis setups.
