Machining - Force axis angle


New member

quick one I haven´t been able to find previous posts about.

I´m trying to program an easy operation in a 5 axis CNC bridge type. 4th and 5th axis are A and C. Because of a collision, I need the angles to be A0 C30 as per the first picture. Issue is that CATIA detects the axis angles is anyway vertical so it turns the angle automatically back to A0 C0 as per the second picture. Any ideas to force the C angle to be different to zero even if A is?
