Entry Style gibbscam

The items in this section help you determine how the tool will enter the part.

Axial

The tool will approach the part in a straight line from along the tool axis

Vertical

The tool will approach the part using a vertical radius. By default the Arc Radius is 25% of the tool radius.

Horizontal

The tool will approach the part using a horizontal radius. By default the Arc Radius is 50% of the tool radius.

Both

Using this choice the tool will approach the part with a vertical radius followed by a horizontal radius.

Max Ramp Angle

Processes that have ramping moves will cut into the material at no steeper an angle than this value, measured from horizontal.

Entry Extension

This item is used with ramps. It is an extra value added to the top profile. This ensures that the tool has fully slowed from its rapid speed. This lets the tool enter the material smoothly at the ramping angle.
