The Deburr tool is primarily for Deburring an edge.


  1. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Deburr button.
    • Select the CAM → Deburr option from the menu.
  2. The Deburr task panel opens. See Options.
  3. Select Base Geometry.
  4. Specify the required parameters.
  5. Press the OK button.


After selecting the geometry in the Base Geometry section of the task panel you can press Apply to see the tool path as defined by the default options.

Next you can check your depths/step down and heights, just like with other path commands.

The Final step is to activate the Operation section where you can specify the following:

  • Tool controller: Select the tool to use.
  • Coolant Mode: Select None, Flood or Mist.
  • Directions: Select CW (clockwise) or CCW (counter-clockwise).
  • W: The dimension of your edge.
  • h: The offset from the bottom of the tool. It's a safety feature because if the tip gets above the edge it won't cut anymore.

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


  • DataDirection: CCW or CW.
  • DataEntry Point: Entry point of the operation, if set to 2 it will go in 2 corners from the default.
  • DataExtra depth: Extra depth (h in the task panel).
  • Data (Hidden)Join: How to join chamfer segments, Round or Miter.
  • Data (Hidden)Side: Side of the operation, Outside or Inside.
  • DataWidth: The width of the chamfer (W in the task panel).


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

Op Values

  • DataOp Stock ZMax: The maximum Z value of the stock.
  • DataOp Stock ZMin: The minimum Z value of the stock.
