I approach these kinds of things in Pro/E with surfaces and datum
In Pro/E I would do this by copying the surface, and selecting the
interior holes I want to fill. Then mill on that surface. Something
else that lets you do is extend the surface so the changes in
direction are happening in open air.
Also, using surfacing in CAM has allowed me to do things like smoothly
ramp in and out of a tapered pipe thread and deburr knife edge thread
chamfers with a crest flat etc.
There is lots of stuff I don't know how to force the CAM to do, but
I've found I can often create reference geometry with surfaces to work
Don't know if this was helpful or not, I use Pro, not MC...
I'll tell ya, Iv'e been modeling, making surfs, etc... but I'm trying not
I'm not selecting boundries, curves, etc..I'm selecting faces. I'm not
filling in holes, I want a switch to jump across.
My goal is literally to not create or edit anything.
The more you use it, the less you'll create geometry.
All I want is the ability to view the verified model in spin and zoom
Technically it might do it now using the in process model?
Tool Path Visualization 3D Dynamic. You can spin and zoom while it
works. The only thing is the resolution is not as nice as the 2D
Dynamic. It's not yet Vericut but better each year.
I'll give it a try.
