In this quick tip video for TopSolid 7, you will be shown how to create a 4 axis radial engraving tool path. To do this, you will be introduced to two cool features. The first is the Rolling up Wizard.
The Rolling up Wizard makes it super easy to create any 4 axis profile that you need to machine. In this case, we will use this command to roll up “TopSolid” around a cylinder for our engraving sample.
The second feature you will be introduced to is radial mode from the side milling command. The side milling command, with radial mode activated, will allow you to quickly and easily machine a 4 axis radial feature.
