Turn Rules

Minimum Corner Radii for Turned Parts

Avoid sharp inside corners. Provide a generous inside radius to accommodate a tool with a large nose radius, which is less prone to breakage.

A turn-down surface perpendicular to an unmachined (cast) surface might cause burrs.

To configure this rule, set Minimum Corner Radius (Turn part).

Bore Relief for Turned Parts

Provide tool relief for the bottoms of blind bored holes.

To configure this rule, set Minimum % of Bore Relief (Turn part).
