FilletMill How to Use it

Postby 1411767062 » Tue Feb 09, 2016 11:59 am

Does any one uses the FilletMil?

I don't have the experience to use it (I am new to visualCam) , So if any one can help me with some tutorial I would be thankful.


Software: Solidworks 2015 sp2 / VisualCam pro for SW 2016.

Best regards

Hello Christos,
Fillet Milling is performed using a Fillet Mill tool in a 2 axis profiling operation. Here are some simple steps if the fillet is already modeled on the part:
1) Define your fillet mill tool.
2) Create a 2x profiling operation.
3) For the control geometry, select the base of the existing fillet.
4) Set the location of cut geometry to AT BOTTOM and set the depth to zero

if the fillet is not modeled on the part select the top edge of the part as the control geometry (at top) and then enter a cut depth equal to the fillet radius.
i hope this helps.
THANKS>
