Hello,

Hopefully someone can help out with this. I have a need to cut undercut with a lollipop cutter but can't find a "valid" operation type for 3X milling. Can anyone please help?

Warren.

Hi Warren,

My understanding is that neither Quickmill nor the 3X milling routines support undercutting with a lollipop cutter.

Our five-axis product does have support for lollipops and we're considering migrating some of this capability into 3X but it definitely won't be a 2009 enhancement.

Could you please send a file and enter a PCR so that we have your needs on file?

thanks,
