Editing the 3D Roughing toolpath

Postby Soapyjoe » Wed Sep 27, 2017 12:53 pm

Hi Everybody,

I am machining a component employing 2Rail Sweep then cutting out the component using the 3D Roughing Toolpath followed by the 3D Finishing Toolpath then Profile cuting our the component.

After a deal of head scratching and some sound advice from this forum I have now just cut out my first pair of components ..... and they are exactly what I require ...... my next problem is this.....

The Roughing toolpath is taking for too long because the step over, between successive cuts, is very small.

How do I edit this?

I am sure that the experts will find this a very simple task but with my limited experience I do need some assistance.

Thanks in anticipation
