I am trying a very easy surface to machine, I thought....
- there is a face which I want to machine with a Z-level operation
- It looks good, but for certainty I would like to extend across the edges a bit
The result rather shows like I am adding a level in Z-direction more.
The MCS_MILL is not exactly as the "operation's Z-level" but I thought this was not a requirement
(or to have a specific sub-CSYS which did have the Z-axis in that direction)
I have pictures of the 1st operation
And the 2nd containing the extend at edges.
Thanks for the advices
Solved! Go to Solution.
It looks like you have a solution. For future reference Extend at Edges will extend your top and bottom Z but that can be easily contained by adjusting the top and bottom of the cut range.
For me it was surprising that "extend at edges" does what the cut levels do,
adjusting the range in Z-direction.
And that the in my eyes 'extending of the cutting paths across the edges' is done by the non-cuting moves.
But a working solution is my final scope, so I am happy.
