Multi-axis positioning for milling operations

Module overview

A common application of 3+2 machining is to machine flat surfaces or pockets around a part. Explore how to use traditional 2 and 3 axis pocketing in a 3+2 positioning operation.

After this module, you'll learn how to:

  • Use 3+2 positioning to create 2D pocket toolpaths in different tool orientations.
  • Create a multi-axis pattern of a toolpath.
