Greetings to all,
First things first. My configuration is as follows:
TC Pro Platinum 2018 64 bit
PC with AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Processor 3.20 GHz
Windows 10 64-bit OS with 20 GB installed memory
I'm having trouble with the Rail Sweep function.
I have a cylinder that I'm trying to create cavities to hold wires for wire management on my home built CNC machine. There is more to the part than what is in the attached file. I just sent the parts that I'm having trouble with.
1. The first time I used the rail sweep (RS) it worked as I expected it to. However, the following times the sweep is shifted by the radius of the circle I'm trying sweep. In other words, I have a large circle, the sweep path, and a smaller circle, the entity to sweep. When the sweep is completed the sweep is shifted to the left of the path, by the width of the smaller circle. Don't understand why the sweep no longer follows the sweep path.
2. I need an opening on the top of the sweep to "press" the wires through. The wires will then be held in place with the friction necessary to press them through the opening. I wanted to use a rectangle and sweep the same path but the sweep is not completed. Hopefully, this will make a little more sense when you look at the file.
The cylinder will cut in half the long way and thus allowing the wires to be managed by the part. The part will be used to direct wires from the stepper motors and limit sensors from the Z-Axis into the drag chain.
Thanks for any help you can offer me.
