I have a few projects in mind where I'd like to have a roughing pass with a largish cutter (up to 1/4") and then finish with a small cutter (around 1mm). As an experiment I put together a quick test where there was a large pocket in the model and then a couple of small blocks extruded from the pocket bottom 1.1 mm apart. When I did a roughing pass with a 3mm endmill then a finishing pass with a 1mm endmill (to cut between the blocks) the finishing pass processed the entire area already cut with the 3mm endmill. In other words, a tremendous waste of time. Is there a way I could have restricted the finishing pass?
I believe in Fusion 360 (which I use occasionally) a path can have a 'rest' attribute, which causes it to ignore areas that have already been processed. I'm looking for something equivalent, even if I have to do some manual masking.
Thanks in advance,
