Cut a turned part to be machined on both sides from the bar and at the same time programme the second machining side. If the length of the blank is defined to such an extent that at the end, there is enough material to “cut” out of the protective zone for the chuck or the clamping jaws. However, if you proceed as described, after the “cutting off” step it would result in the half-finished workpiece falling in the simulation as in reality in the chip tray or a part catcher. Afterwards, the geometry is no longer available in the working plan for further machining.

But what is the solution then? The practical tip gives you the answer to this question.
