Trim toolpath not working in 4x cor setup w/ contour multi-pass


Recommended Posts

Because it is a possible defect. I have always drawn my chains in situations like this. That way I get lead in and out at each cut. This is the biggest reason I have never used trim and will probably never use it. No intelligence built into the process. It is a dumb brick of a process. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Hi and thanks for input

That's what I ended up doing. This time Trim would have been perfect for my use case - if only it had worked. Drawing geometry by hand always takes more time. And yes, I can't recall the last time I used Trim and yes, it sucks because it doesn't even support compensating for cutter diameter.

I wonder if they fix this...most likely not.
