I tried using the Streamline Fixed Contour to create a helical tool path to machine the curved surface of a cylinder. I noticed that the top edge of the cylinder is first "cut" before the helical path begins. As no material is cut, I would like to know if there is a way to remove that first circular motion.
At the bottom of the cylinder, the tool goes around the cylinder one more time to machine the remaining material. Is there a way to remove that last circular motion as well?
