It would help to explain better after seeing particular issue in CB file. It is hard to give an correct answer speculating..

It is pretty simple I just need a true one piece sloped spiral, can CB do this by any means?
If not can any other software do it?

The major advantage of a spiral leadin profile is that it is easier on tools than plunging to depth.

You cannot cut a true sloped spiral with G2/G3 since each point of the arc will have a different radius.  CB can approximate a sloped profile by making successive cuts at each DOC with a larger clearance.

Oh what you say makes sense

but what if I dont need it in arcs? Imagine it is a 3D toolpath at the worst case.

Hello guys, I just started using cambam mainly because its ability to generate spiral toolpaths but here is a Q.
Attached is a screenshot of a sloped spiral toolpath

I am just wondering if there is a way where cambam can generate a welded sloped spiral toopath
instead of this layered stepped spiral ones

No slope, no problem
but if there is a slope and cambam doing this, what is the point of the toolpath being spiral anyways?
thinking about it, it just combined 2 normal circular paths together!

hope to get responses
thanks in advance
cheers!
