    Problem with not-quite-standard tools...

    bernardwells

      Hello,

       

      I am having some trouble running a parallel finishing pass with a 1/32" ball end mill. I can define the tool in the library jsut fine and generate the path, but the problem has to do with the fact that VM only lets me define a tool's diameter and length; this tool is a 1/32" ball end with a 1/8" shank. The 1/32" part of it is only abut 0.125" long, then it flares out over the next 0.125" to the shank size. The problem with this is that VM tries to put the tip of the tool quite deep down along the steep sides of the part and ends up ramming the tapered section of the bit into the part.

       

      Please help.

       

      I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
