cnc lathe 2 tools
« on: December 26, 2023, 21:12:11 pm »
Hi All...I have gotten great help her on other topics so now I am trying to see if it is possible to use 2 different tools on seperate axis  with a 1 inch difference between them, at  the same time at different positions of lathe z axis travel. The whole concept is one pass as the part will pass through a bearing as steady rest.
So it would be like running 2 profiles at the same time from same geometry but with 2nd profile starting 1 inch after first ..Impossible?

Thanks for any help

Hello

You mean two tools that are cutting at the same time as on (very) high end CNC lathe ? like on this video at 0:26

If it is the case, I thing it is not possible with CamBam.
