This might not be the correct thread but I have a part with some curves/radii in it, and I want to make sure I am dimensioning it as easy as possible for the machinist. The way it is currently dimensioned I know that you can figure out the curves if you do all the math, but how would a machinist actually go about and do this? Do they have a program where they can easily drop these radii in and make them all tangent? Or would it be easier if I gave center locations to all of the radii? Also is it easy for a machinist to program a profile for whether the machine should follow the outside or the inside of the radii? I have several parts like this and i want to make sure the drawings make sense. Please see attached.
