Understanding Cutter Comp

I came across an article in the CNC-West October/November 2018 issue that effectively explains one of the questions I have been asked repeatedly  to explain throughout my career – “What cutter comp do I use and why?”. Tim Paul, Manufacturing and Business Strategy Manager at Autodesk has done an excellent job of explaining the differences of the various cutter compensation options a programmer will find in most CAD/CAM systems, along with how they are correctly utilized on a CNC’s console by the machinist. Here is a link to Tim’s article.  Please share this with your team!
