Learn about milling 2D pockets.
- [Instructor] In this video, we're going…to be learning about 2D pockets.…On the screen, you can see I've got three…different pockets here, I've got a big one,…a medium sized one, as well as a…small pocket over here, in varying depths.…Alright, so the first thing I want to do is come up here…to 2D milling and come down here to 2D pocket.…Alright, let's go ahead and select from the library,…and I don't really have a tool that I want,…so I'm going to go ahead and create a brand-new tool.…In mill tool, I'm going to go over here to general,…I'm going to call it tool number 12,…and I'm going to call this a quarter-inch end mill.…
And, generally I'd fill out the vendor…and product ID, if I knew the tool I was…already using, but for this example I'm going to…go ahead and just leave those off.…As far as the material, I'm going to choose…a carbide end mill, as far as the cutter,…I don't want a bull-nose end mill,…I want a flat-end mill, it's going to be…quarter-inch diameter, so type point two five,…or you could actually type in one divided by four,…
