Multi Passes in Contour Area

Hello,

 

In the past I remember being able to set cut depths when Multiple Passes was selected. Has the dialog changed?Where are the depths of cut specified? The help docs describe an Increment option, which I remember using, but is not there anymore.

Thanks for responding. 

 

I am on same version. Do you see different dialog in your operation? A way to set the depth of cut/increment?

 

I even right clicked operation>object> customize, and updated from template thinking it would solve it. Still looks the same.

Hi

I think in the area milling setting your "Stepover Applied" is "On Part"

Set this value to "On Plane" an the checkbox should appear.

Yes, that was it. It needs to be "On Plane." 

 

It would be better if they left it there, but greyed out. Then when you hover mouse over it, it would have a message saying "must use Stepover "On Plane for this function."

 

 

How else would I have known that. I don't use it often, so I never correlated the connection between the two.
