Just a quick question;
I just started milling aluminum and am having great success after a few modifications to the machine. After playing around a bit, I am noticing that climb milling seems to produce much less chatter and cuts smooth, but it affects my overall dimensions even with a very small finishing pass. Conventional milling seems to produce the more accurate part. In my test piece, I am noticing that the conventional milled part is fairly close, only about .010" oversize. The climb milled parts average an additional .010" oversize making them around .020 oversize.
I would like to know if Estlcam has the ability to climb mill the roughing pass and conventional mill the finishing pass
Thanks in advance!
