I am having a little trouble getting a facing operation that works for me.
I generally use larger facemills or a fly cutter to face the part as a first op.
I can't seem to generate the path I am wanting with the current millface, I would like to be able to do the following:
1. add additional lead-in (cutter radius + 10%) to allow the cutter to plunge outside the stock, The existing option 'material allowance' almost works here but it adds material in all directions, in some cases this causes a path that is outside the bounds of my machine travel.
2. I find I get a better finish if i make all the cuts in the same direction, lifting the tool at the end of each pass and rapiding to the start of the next pass.
Is this possible with the current implementation?
