4-AXIS TOOLPATHS

ABOUT ROTARY AXIS CONTROL

4-AXIS TOOLPATHS ABOUT ROTARY AXIS CONTROL Mastercam allows you to configure rotary axis motion for 2D or 3D toolpaths. You can select one of three types of rotary motion: Rotary Axis Positioning is used to index the part to a specified tool plane. The tool can then move in three axes. 3-axis is used to rotate the part while the tool axis stays parallel to the axis of rotation. Also called polar conversion, this replaces linear motion in X, Y, or Z with rotary motion. This is typically used to machine a toolpath on a face of a part. Axis Substitution is used to wrap a toolpath around a cylinder. The geometry can be either flat or already properly oriented in 3D space (select the Unroll option if this is so). Rotary Diameter sets the size of the cylinder that the toolpath is rotating about. It is used mainly for toolpaths on cylinders.

NOTE: Before you can create rotary axis motion, you need to properly configure the rotary axis components in your machine definition. You will only be able to select rotary axis options which are supported by your machine definition. Mastercam can simulate the rotary axis performance while backplotting the toolpath. To enable this feature, go to the Backplot Options dialog box and select Simulate Axis Substitution or Simulate Rotary Axis. The Rotary Axis Control page should look as shown.

AXIS SUBSTITUTION - ROLL THE GEOMETRY

4-AXIS TOOLPATHS

EXERCISE 1: AXIS SUBSTITUTION - ROLL THE GEOMETRY Axis Substitution is used on machines that allow simultaneous four-axis movements. The toolpath replaces X or Y-axis with a rotary axis, known as A-axis or B-axis. Using this option, the part will be rotated about the rotating axis while the tool moves perpendicular to the axis of rotation.
