    Default Creo Help - Trying to undercut using a lollipop cutter

    I'm new to using Creo 3.0 and I'm going crazy over here.

    In the square drive of a 1/4" socket there is an undercut for the ball detent that is on a ratchet. I'm trying to cut this using a lollipop cutter (solid model cutter) and a surface milling, although I really don't care how it gets in there other than I can't do a trajectory as the cutter does not match the feature.

    When I try to create the path I get a "Tool cannon be placed without gouging surface." Of course, it won't even show me where it's hitting so I can figure out if I could do a lead in change.

    Any ideas? Picture is attached.

    Looks simple enough just write it out by hand unless it’s some sort of ridiculous point to point surface.

    It's just a 2mm radius cut all the way around. I'd like to be able to do it in the software but that's a valid point. Finding there is very little non official help for Creo. Ugh.
