The Path Deburr.svg Path Deburr tool is primarily for Deburring an edge.


Use for de-burring edges.

Start feature → select face or edge → configure options.


After starting the feature you have to select the face or edge you want to de-burr in the Base Geometry tab in the Deburr feature menu. As seen in below:

Base Geometry tab within the Deburr feature menu

After you selected the geometry you can press Apply to see the tool-path as set by the default options.
When you have everything selected you can check your depths/step down and heights just like other path functions.

Final step is the menu that as seen below, you can configure the feature as follows:

  • Tool controller: The tool a 90 degree V-bit
  • Coolant Mode: Do you want coolant? (On/Off)
  • Directions: CW (clockwise) or CCW (counter-clockwise)
  • W: is the dimension of your edge.
  • h: is the offset from the bottom of the V-bit. It's a safety feature because if the tip gets above the edge it won't cut anymore.

Base Geometry

  • DataPlacement:
  • DataLabel: User name of the object (UTF-8)


  • DataDirection: CCW or CW
  • DataEntry Point: Change this to change Entry point, if set to 2 it will go in 2 corners from the default.
  • DataExtra depth: Extra depth or h in the menu.
  • DataJoin: How to join chamfer segments, Round or Miter. [example needed]
  • DataSide: Can change sides. [example needed]
  • DataWidth: The width you fill in in the menu by W.


  • DataClearance Height: The height needed to clear clamps and obstructions (set by default to OpStockZMax + SetupSheet.ClearanceHeightOffset)
  • DataSafe Height: The above which Rapid motions are allowed. (set to OpStockZMax + SetupSheet.SafeHeightOffset)
  • DataStart Depth: Starting Depth of Tool- first cut depth in Z
  • DataStep Down: Incremental Step Down of Tool


  • DataActive: Make False, to prevent operation from generating code
  • DataBase: The base geometry for this operation, edges or a face
  • DataComment: An optional comment for this operation
  • DataCoolant Mode: Coolant mode for this operation
  • DataCycle Time: Estimated cycle time for this operation
  • DataStart Vertex: The vertex index to start the path from
  • DataTool Controller: The tool controller that will be used to calculate the path
  • DataUser Label: User assigned label
