volume mill

Hey


I have a question, if anyone can help. I am doing a volume mill on a rectanguler block to remove .25 inch from the workpiece. I understand it leaves material on the 4 corners which look like columns. How do i take off this extra material? I'd really appreciate if anyone could spare some time.


bye

You might try offsetting the edges of your volume away from the part. There is also a facemill function that works quite well.

Hey Carl


Thanks a lot. I will try both of them tomorrow. I was actually trying to make the local mill with corners, but its acting crazy on me. I really appreciate your time.


Thank
