Aggregate Tool

Postby Nemanja Vujkovic » Mon, Mar 12 2007, 1:19PM

Are aggregate tools competible with Profile Modeler?
Roger and i are trying to run radius molding thats 3-4 inches thick and the profile is on inside.
Can this be done???

By design, horizontal tooling is not supported by Control Nesting. Horizontal tooling typically would not have enough clearance between parts to access side cuts. Also, typically parts using horizontal tooling require some sort of fixturing that raises part off of table to allow tool to reach for cutting.

I'm not sure who is going to be stopping by your facility this week. I do know that I'm in house this week though. However, if I were the one comming out your way, I would certainly stop in to say hello :)

The pict. you've attached should be able to be done using Profile Modeler. The groove around ring would probably look nice with a regular endmill taking a single centerline type tool path.
