PullOffs with Stock gibbscam

In this sample we have a circular part in which the first cut does not have any pulloff moves. The software is considering the part’s stock all the way to the rectangular definition in the Document Control Dialog. The software is purposely excluding the pulloffs to avoid collisions with the stock. To fix this problem we created a cylinder with an identical OD to the part and set this body’s properties to “stock”.

This part also includes a sample of using the circular toolpath definition to control the cutting direction, resulting in the tool always cutting “uphill. The first operation cuts from the outside to the inside while the second operation cuts from the inside to the outside. The two operations meet in the middle at the highest point on the part.
