I am trying to pocket this one hole on my part, and estlcam keeps turning it into some sort of helical drill due to it being a perfectly circular pocket. The problem with this is that the tool for some reason helical plunges really aggressive on that one pocket only with the same settings as the other pockets. I am suprised I didn’t break an endmill, my machine actually managed to survive the deep plunge. It went 6.4mm deep in a few seconds, dang. I don’t get it…how do I stop it? I kept clicking things and nothing popped up to remove this.
Also for the pockets surrounding the circle, I would like to have the thin interior slots start at a lower level, otherwise they cut air until they reach the depth. The start level setting isn’t letting me put negative values even though it says you can…why D:<
Ok that’s my rant/pleading for answers for today friends.
