Turn wizard for cutting V-grooves/pulleys?
« on: September 27, 2013, 11:25:54 AM »
I need to make a couple v-belt pulleys and was wondering if there's a Turn wizard that does V-grooves?  Closest thing I've found is the OD Groove wizard which I suppose would work if a custom tool was ground to match the v groove angle.
Milton from Tennessee ya'll.

Would be interested in a wizard for this also.

Hmm....
Haven't tried it but you should be able do it with LazyTurn.
The tool will need to be ground for the V.
LazyTurn should generate code such that the tool pathing would be back and forth progressing into the v slot and
then a fiinish finsh cut folowing the V profile to clean it up.

Just something that came to mind,
