Dado/pocket ramp in setting

Postby Joe Soto » Fri, May 31 2019, 12:42PM

Is there a way to control where a dado or pocket ramp starts? I know how to set a start point with a .dxf but I have some parts created in eCabs with pockets that Cn wants to start the ramp on the shortest side. I have my dado pre ramp set at .01" and length at 4" with a speed of 40 ipm so it eases in. The next line of code is a movement with a feed of 600 ipm. Fine if the ramp line was long enough, way to fast if its a short line.
EDIT. Actually it appears to be ramping in on the stepover motion of the pocket.
