Contour Skipping Sections

Recommended Posts

I am working on a project to machine out this paw shape and am struggling to get the contour feature to work. Instead of tracing the shape cleanly, it skips around leaving sections untouched as shown in the picture. I was able to get the contour feature to work on the 4 "fingers" but the main portion is leaving portions untouched by the tool path. What can i do to remedy this issue? I also uploaded the .emcam file to help with troubleshooting.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Your stock setup may be a little bit lower than the roughing path also.


You can also use optirough with upcuts to rough
