Cutter compensation issue
« on: December 01, 2020, 09:23:28 AM »
Hi all,

I am having issues with cutter compensation. We are using an end mill to rough around a waterjet cut blank. The blank is a complex shape with multiple radii. When using cutter compensation, the smaller radius have a circle path drawn, cutting into the material. When turning off compensation, the part appears normal. Any ideas what could be going on?. Any help would be appreciated.

The cutter comp only works if the tool radius is smaller than the smallest radius on the part.

Yes, the smallest part radius is larger than the tool radius.
