Jul 31, 2006 step over refeer to cusp hight. How much of the radius from tool did not cut to Z 0 So for every .05 step there would be a rise from ball on tool of .00125 and if your looking for a smooth surface with this step over you will be hand sanding ***** Cusp Height / Cutter Stepover Calculation ***** Tool Radius = 0.25 Cutter Stepover =

• 3D Pocket Clearing - manual Stepover for Ball endmills

Jul 02, 2016 If you are using an 8mm ball mill, then 6mm stepover is still very aggressive and will leave a very irregular surface for the finish pass. The goal is to get as uniform a surface as possible for the finish pass so the cutter bends by a uniform amount. Any change is the amount of force on the cutter will show up on the surface of the finish cut

• Selecting a Stepover - Harvard GSD Fabrication Lab

Jul 29, 2019 The stepover should be between 1/3 and 1/10 of the tool diameter. Use a larger stepover, in the 1/5 to 1/3 range, for soft materials that cannot hold detail well. Use a smaller stepover, in the 1/5 to 1/10 range, for hard materials or materials that can hold significant detail like metal and jewelers wax. Use the largest tool that will allow

The Ball Mill Finish Calculator can be used when an end mill with a full radius (a ball mill) is used on a contoured surface. The tool radius on each side of the cut will leave stock referred to as a scallop. The finish of the part will be determined by the height of the scallop, amd the scallop will be determined by the stepover distance between cuts
