Using multi-axis Flow

Module overview

The Flow toolpath strategy follows UV iso vectors normal to a select surface and typically is used to machine things such as large external fillets on parts. Flow can be used with both 3-axis and multi-axis strategies. Learn to apply the flow toolpath in both 3 and 5 axis settings to understand what the options change and how it can be utilized on complex parts.

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

  • Describe the flow toolpath
  • Create a 3-axis flow toolpath
  • Create a 5-axis flow toolpath
