Tool Diameter compensation amount

(John Elvin Milbery III) #1

For a Datron Neo, does anybody know what value I need to put in the Tool Compensation table for a 8mm flat end mill? I am trying to use cutter compensation on a finish profile and I am getting errors…

Isn’t cutter compensation used to adjust for the difference between the endmill diameter a G-Code file was set up for, and the actual diameter used?

Yes it is, it is most often used for wear compensation of the cutter. I was able to find my answer over the weekend so thank-you for responding!
