    Default Compensation Type set to control or wear?

    When I do a contour tool path for a mill for compensation type I've used "wear" for many years and never had any of the issues that I use to have when I used "control" and now I work at a shop where the tool room manager tells his people to program with compensation type set to "control" because that's how everyone does it.


    Any thoughts

    Wear setting saves time.


    Control setting allows you to use different size cutters.


    Have you ask your tool room manager why he wants his people to use computer compensation?
