Creating and understanding multi-axis swarf

Module overview

The swarf toolpath is one of the most easily applied and commonly used simultaneous multi-axis toolpaths. The multi-axis swarf allows us to manually control tilt angle of a tool with a contour selection, or have it done automatically for us with a surface selection. Learn how to use and understand what a swarf toolpath can do.

After completing this module, you'll be able to: 

  • Describe the usage of a swarf toolpath.
