Select the paths you want to work with.
Open the toolpaths tab on the right side of the screen and press the "Pocket" button.
Set the Start Depth. Zero corresponds to the top of the material and is usually where you want to start cutting.
Set the Cut Depth. This is measured RELATIVE to the start depth. For example, a start depth of 0.5 and a cut depth of 0.6 would end up cutting to a final depth of 1.1.
Select the appropriate Tool. There are many cutting tools pre-defined in the Tool Database. Press the "Select" button to access them and choose one. DO NOT EDIT ANY OF THE TOOL PRESETS WITHOUT STAFF APPROVAL. You can damage the tool, the machine or hurt someone if you enter inappropriate speed and feed settings.
Select whether to clear the pocket by OFFSET or RASTER cutting. OFFSET will make concentric toolpaths moving from the center of an enclosed area to the edge. RASTER will start on one side of an enclosed area and zig zag toward the opposite side.
Selecting the "Ramp Plunge Moves" option will ease the cutting tool into the material by zig-zagging vertically rather than plunging directly downward. This option generates less stress and can prolong tool life but increases machining time.
Press "Calculate" to generate a toolpath with the specified depths, cutting tool and cutting parameters.
Note that increasing the tool diameter reduces the length of the toolpath required to clear an enclosed area. For example, the toolpath above was generated using a tool diameter of 1/4" while the toolpath below was generated using a tool diameter of 3/8".
