I test it a little more, and maybe this is a way.
I chose to a Lathe Groove and change the Trajectory Type to Face.

TCC doesn't have the right tool in its tool library.For faced machining.But in physical use a boring bar tool,or a tool with a included angle for metal ,or a tool with radius if your machining wood.

Is it not possible to make a tool like this?

The tool geometry is not the best in your sample image but in the enclose attachments might be better,

OK. you know.
Maybe this should be a suggestion for an TC CAM update.
It is best if somebody who understand this, came with that suggestions.
I think you are that man.

Have you your own cnc, and have you tested all this this tings on it.

Your last video, was very cool since we also could see how the tools look like in the simulation.

Hey Kai
Sorry I didn’t respond sooner I had troubles with my P.C.
After cleaning out a cookies which contains some kind of  malware. I was able to proceed on your question about tooling. In the enclosed  tcw. file  is the tool that would be a choice. But in my case I had to change the sizes to avoid a collision with the tool. Tool dimensions can be changes in the Tool Store in the Tool definitions Fields. Also a link showing it operation. Also I show jpeg. showing a collision with the tool as example on how the wrong tool can cause problems.

Thank you.
I learn more and more every day.
I will try to figure out how you built that tool.
I see it has many values.
Have you turned the tool 90 degree?

Have you your own cnc, and have you tested all this this tools on it.

Merry Christmas

Kai

Your Welcome
No I didn't test these programs,In fact the speeds and feeds may need to be modify in the real world.I didn't put much emphasis on them.I do have CNC extensive experience with both manual and CNC.The tool I show is not my 1st choice but I used to see if it will work. There are better tools to chose from.The tool is base on how the direction of cut is going is how it works.I have a flange that I will post with O-ring groove that show the tool for grooving in relation to our prior discussions.

EDIT : added attachments
