Identifying and Machining Material in Corners
The Equal Scallop toolpath now identifies material left in corners and will machine it with a single pass or with multiple passes to ease into the material. The new Step in option allows you to control the removal of material by the step ins you define. Distance specifies the amount of material to remove with each step in. Maximum step ins specifies the maximum number of step ins. The actual number of step ins performed might be less than the maximum specified here.
The Step in options are for semi-finishing applications and not intended for finishing. If Mastercam does not detect enough stock to engage, then no more passes are created. Mastercam leaves small amounts of stock so that small segments of motion are not created.
