I’m trying to figure out a workaround for machining regions and keep out regions in Carbide Create (like in Meshcam).
I have a nameplate I milled with a name on it. Everything looks good except for a couple of spots where the mill was unable to reach. I can definitely specify a smaller end mill, but this will make my overall machine time much greater. What I wanted to do was specify a smaller end mill for to finish machining just the couple of regions that it can’t reach.
Does anyone have any suggestions to make this work? I suppose I could just do the whole thing in Meshcam but there are a couple of things I like in Carbide Create. Like the ability to to v-carving and the ability to follow an outline only. Following the outline is also nice for running a ball end to a limited depth to create a concave edge for example.
