I learn something new every day
« on: January 06, 2011, 20:46:30 pm »
I used some new (to me) CB features today and found them to work excellently!  :)

The first feature was using the profile MOP to mill a pocket in my vise softjaws, the reason being to use the corner overcut option to get a tight fit on some angular corners.  I had to increase the cutwidth to fill the pocket.

Then when I tried to clamp the part in the pocket, it didn't fit (too tight).  But then rerunning the profile with a negative roughing allowance of .005" to widen it slightly overall allowed a nice tight fit.

Finally running the same profile with a more negative roughing allowance allowed me to machine the part to size and no burrs along the edge.

Seems every time I use CB I find some new nifty feature.  Thanks!
