The Machining Direction will help you with the direction of your cuts for each different job setup.
This video is part of a Mini-Series that covers all the different settings for the Toolpaths.

Alright, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at other camps two parts contour adjustment and this will be for machining direction. So the different options we have there, but before that, let's have a quick intro first. Mhm, Mhm, Mhm. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za z. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise we're back on the programme. Yeah, Now, just quick reminder. This is a miniseries on two parts and their settings. At the moment, we are still covering contour adjustment. So we already looked at the actual, um uh, first two settings. Now, this is the third one, which is machining direction. Uh, okay. Not all of them obviously has the machining direction and, uh, some of the different settings under it, but it all works pretty similar in most cases. So if I go here with my object selected and I opened a new contour milling and under the tool centre also, we have this machining direction. Now, on the year we've got climb and conventional now they're the big difference in this is like, for instance, climb. I know it's a bit confusing, but this one will cut basically from top down. Obviously, depending on the the position of your machine. If we got to preview that quick, we keep it on climb. We generate a code here, and we open up. Now we can see this shapes cutting from the top downwards. Now, if we had to go and edit this and then we make it conventional, okay, regenerate. Now we can see it starting from the bottom up. And also something to keep in mind when it comes to these is, um that the climb will cut in direction to, uh, of course, I say we'll move in the direction of your, um, cutting bit. So let's say it is spinning clockwise. Then it will cut towards that side so it doesn't cut against the grain. So and then obviously conventional will do the opposite. They will cut against the grain or against the flow for a more hardship cut. Now, if that it comes to dealing with bits and that if we go to actual laser and so forth, then it obviously works a bit different. So let me just delete this one click on, uh, cutting for laser plasma and water. And then now, on the machine direction we've got, as you can see, the same direction opposite direction, same direction or basically cutting it one way at the moment. I think it is from top down, my leader from a quick look at that and then just generate it. Yeah, so at the moment, as you can see, it cuts it from the top down. Now, obviously, you can just go edited and then go opposite direction. Then once you generate it now, it will do it from the bottom up. So it's very similar, but you don't have to worry so much about the actual cutting direction of the, but you can see whether it's cutting with it or against it. So just a quick recap again on the machining direction. So climb it will be cutting top down, depending on the position of your machine And on, uh, convention will be climbing. I mean, cutting from the bottom up against the the grain you can say, and then on machining. And it will just be top down. Bottom up, um, in that fashion and yeah, that is it on machining direction. If we head here to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice We've got a variety of different Softwares to recover. And you can also isolate your search on the top, right? If you simply do not find what you're looking for, I just got here. Request a training video, fill in the uniform, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
