Finish walls efficiently?

Legend

is there a path that would auto trim the wall paths for air cutting? Without doing multiple paths and trimming boundaries...is there an automatic solution?

Awesome. Thank you for that. I haven't really played with Floor Wall for this type of path yet. Always seem to be use finish wall.

Using any of the PLANAR_MILL derived operations will always ignore the solid model, since they only support boundaries.

 

If you need to have the solid taken into account, you need to use one of the operations where you specify the geometry based on solids, sheets or facets.

I know that. What I was trying to get across is I haven't been able to get a solid geometry operation to do exactly what I want.

 

Z level gets the job done but you only get one pass. No extra passes.

Floor / Wall doesn't exactly give the best results every time.

Zlevel should create multiple passes, based on the depth of cut.

Multiple side passes is what I meant

Unless others have worked out how, I find multiple side cuts is best done using other operations such as cavity mill.

 

Attached is a screenshot of what always seems to happen to me when using floor_wall, the cutter dives in to the finshed size then pulls out to the offset distance and the lead in/out is borked.
