CC cutting paths

Hello, When i go to pocket out a project the cutter starts in the center . Then cuts in squares till it gets to the edge. I would like to surface a board and have the cutter start at the top of my project and just go left to right till it gets to the bottom. Is there a way for CC to do this Thanks

Not easily.

If you don’t want to accept the toolpaths which Carbide Create you could manually draw them:

there is likely a different hack one can do… in 3D modeling roughing (and finishing) CC will zigzag as well… so you could use a 3D model for it

That’s on of the nice things about vcarve, it let’s you specify a raster cut and even specify the angle the cut will go. So it works great to have it pocket with the grain to help hide tool marks.
