When using the 2d pocket function in hsmworks/fusion cam, does anyone know how to change the radius of the tool path as the tool steps over for the next pass? I prefer this function vs some of the 3d tools for certain simple features, but this stepover radius often fouls things when running in stainless or other materials sensitive to chip load. It commands a tight radius and does not reduce the feedrate, not to lead in feedrate, not to feed optimization feedrate. I've tried varying the minimum cut radius, lead in/lead out radius, sweep angle. none of it seems to affect the radius of these arcs. I know i can switch to morphed spiral with certain geometries, but it seems like this is a simple function and should be able to be adjusted.
