Just thought i'd share this with all the users who are frustrated with the way enroute 3.3's offset toolpath lifts up on multipasses.

It will prevent this from happening and also allow for true helical boring

RAMP CONTOURING for Enroute3.3

 

NOTE: To figure out # of passes take thickness and divide by amount per pass desired

Ex. .250in thickness / .025per pass = 10 passes

 

Squares/Rectangles

 

Squares (side dimension x 4)                                                                

Ex. 6 x 4 = 24 x number of passes

 

Rectangles (side + side + side + side)

Ex. 7 + 7 + 4 + 4 = 22 x number of passes

 

 

Circle Outside

Diameter x 3.14 x number of passes

 

 

Circle Inside

Diameter tool size x 3.14 x number of passes

 

 

Settings

-Set toolpath for 1 pass

-Set desired depth (this would be the thickness)

-Set entry to line

-Turn angle to 0.000

-Turn on 3d line

-Enter calculations of equation in line length box

Thanks!

This is just the kind of thing this forum should be used for rather than the constant complaining!

Yes I agree with Andy on this one too!!

Everyday I am constantly switching back and forth from our CAD program to Enroute to offset single line contours
To offset a single open offet contour in Enroute is a chore to say the least and even then there are times it cannot be done at all
Enroute just can't seem to handle a curved part

It sure would be nice if the snap constraints would work with the drill point tool.

these are the everyday, day to day issues we are facing using Enroute. I can't be the only one with these issues, just the only one complaining about it.

I consistently have a problem in Enroute of snapping one circle to the center of another.

Has anyone ever really looked at the advanced nesting features of Enroute and used them successfully??

I have to nest everything manually to get a decent yield. Trusting nesting to this program is not something you should do.

I should not be wasting my time nesting a part like this manually with this caliber of program.

When will be able to do any editting of a given toolpath without the entry exits moving?

snaps have been driving me crazy lately, as the snaps in all my other programs are so easy to use.

HELLO............Anyone from Scanvec out there?????????

Most of the topics I have seen on the board are problems that can be duplicated and not just fluky, one time glitches. Most problem topics are software issues and not just application issues and these need to be addressed.

Every other program I have in use or tried always extends the existing curve, be it a curve or straight line. Enroute is the only program where it doesn't care and only extends a straight line segment,

Well I allways try to break it down to a simple application....You think hard its going to be hard.....this program will work if you work it right....  And if all the other program are so easy ...how come your not useing them? Why are you here?WTF are you doing?... I love this program ,ya sure we bitch in here when we cant get an extra key or something like that...All programs have problems which is going to happen..........................

If there are so many complaints... there must be something wrong....

If theres something wrong, something must be said....

If something must be said, someone must listen....

If no one listens, there will be more complaints...

Were are not stupid fkn idiots okay...? We payed good money and get s h i t in return....
