Artcam to Mach3 4th axis
« on: October 04, 2016, 10:11:38 AM »
Can anyone give me some advice on cutting on my 4th axis on my CNC mill.
I have been trying to cut a ring in wax on my 4th axis, I did the drawing in Artcam the circumference of the outside of the ring (say 60mm) when I try to cut the ring in Mach3 it only cuts 3/4 the way around the ring not the full 369deg.
But if I stay a simple pattern in Cut2d at 360mm long it cuts the pattern the whole 360deg. Is there a setting or calculation I need to use to get the Artcam toolpath file to cut all the way around the ring.
My machine is a mini muscle cnc with a 4th axis added to it.
