Hi guys, I am trying to set up a new job in meshcam and i am using the carbide auto toolpath.
I have tried meshcam 6 and meshcam 7 and whenever I generate the auto toolpath (using the Carbide auto toolpath not the “3d toolpath” button)
For some reason it only lets me select 1 type of bit and wants to use that same bit for both roughing and finishing.
How can I set 2 different types of bits for each path?
I am able to do it using the “3d toolpath” button and not the carbide auto toolpath, and I would just use that option but when I do it through that setting the job estimate comes out at like 5x longer than if I use the carbide auto toolpath option.
Here is my path generated with carbide auto toolpath:
About 310 mins estimated
Here is the exact same path generated using the normal 3d toolpath tool:
Why is this one coming in at over 1350 estimated minutes?
Both paths are generated using the same tool.
Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Thanks!
