Within the eighteenth video of this 25-video series on programming a Multus U3000 with TopSolid, I demonstrate finish milling using polar coordinates.
After selecting side milling, TopSolid again illustrates one of its wonderful time-saving characteristics. All the relevant faces are identified by the system allowing me to select the appropriate settings to finish mill these faces all at once.
I prefer using polar coordinates for machining as we did in the previous video, so we continue down that path again here. Ultimately, simulation confirms that we are using the C axis appropriately and I feel comfortable moving on to the next operation needed for machining our part which will involve some 5-axis continuous milling.
