Learn how to circular mill.
- [Instructor] The circular tool path…allows you to create multiple boxes or holes…all with the same operation,…and let me show you how it works.…First things first,…go up here to 2D Milling,…come down here to Circular Tool Path.…Click on that one right there.…You can also use this for, like,…grooves and things like that,…so if you want to make multiple grooves down a part…going around something,…you can select the circular tool path to do that, as well.…You can also use this to create grooves in a part…or something like that…if you have, like, a hole…and you don't want to make a helix,…like a thread going into it,…you just want to make a series of circular cuts.…
It's a very easy way to do that, as well.…So something like a barb or something like that…would be a good way to use the circular tool path.…So over here as far as the tool name,…I'm going to go ahead and select the five-eighths hand mill…that I've been using in the past,…come over here to the model.…I'm going to go ahead and choose the outside surface here,…
