Microvellum DOC Sequence7/28
Even though I've now been using Microvellum for about 3 yrs I still consider myself somewhat green with it. For reference we are talking Toolbox v.6
OK....the question I am wondering about is: Is there a way to control the routing output sequence so that the shallowest cuts are always first and continue with each sequential depth?
In any given nest this can be multiple operations on multiple parts. In many cases though a couple routes need to be sequenced based on DOC.
If it requires a modification to the post so be it. I just need to know what the options and/or fixes are.
Thanks in advance
I take it that you are creating a "virtual" tool a 900 series with multiple passes. If you are then you need to call Oregon otherwise you need to set the tool path priorities which is a real PITA in v6.0.
I'm not sure I understand your question or concern. Do you mean it is routing the borders of the parts first, then all the internal machining? If not, I can't understand why it would matter...
Sorry for the delay in response here guys.
We have some 900 tools setup but that is not where the concern is.
Borders always cut last so that is not the issue either.
The problem occurs with routed holes that we are trying to dust out for several very good reasons.
The problem is that the pocket portion and the perimeter cut are separate toolpaths. About 50% of the time it will cut the perimeter first and then try to cut the pocket second.
Yeah, your going to need to call Oregon, V6 had issues with machining, well actually so does V7, but I have seen exactly what you are referring to and I did some 'custom' geometry work, MV just couldn't cut it.
