(20) If NC data for end face roughing is not output normally
If the cutting area for end face machining is divided as shown in Fig.
2.5 (ad), a cutting area that temporarily has two closed areas
(portions A and B) is created internally as shown in Fig. 2.5 (ae)
when compensation related to the finishing allowance or nose R is
performed. Then, portion B is removed, and only portion A is left
as the cutting area. As a result, NC data that cuts only portion A is
In this case, change the dividing direction as shown in Fig. 2.5 (af).
Changing the dividing direction creates an appropriate cutting area
rather than the one shown in Fig. 2.5 (ae).
