    Cut sweep a blade path

    Jeff Dickson

      Hello All


      Today's challenge :


      I'm looking to sweep what is a blade path which can rotate along an axis leaving a "castellated cut" which is what our more fancy machines can do.


      Attached picture shows a 10mm blade rectangle , it central axis which does not change and two guide paths which would result as the blade rotates about the central axis.


      Being able to do this cut sweep would be super handy as we experiment with blade paths


      As you can see in the other picture the sweep path will work but SW changes the paths from the desired square path to a nice smooth parabola type thing !


      Any help or suggestions much appreciated
