You say that 3D surface operation is experimental in OpenCamLib (I assume this is the engine on which Path runs). This would mean that it is possible, but without any guarantee. Do I have it right?
you are at an open source project, - there is anytime everythin without guarantee...
OpenCamLib is not the engine Path runs on, it's just "engine" for the 3D Operations (without 3D Pocket).
The bad thing: OpenCamLib is a third party package and makes a lot of problems atm. ( I'm not able to install it...)
If i got it running my workflow for a "cone" would be:
1. a "roughing path" with 3D Pocket.
2. a 3D Facing path in X direction
3. a 3D Facing path in Y direction
The 3D Facing Ops with only little step over and a ballend endmill should result in a nice surface.
