Im new to CNC and I have been trying to stumble my way through learning by watching videos, reading the forum, and just plain trial and error.
I have what seems like it should be a very simple task and that is to pocket out an area while leaving some islands untouched. The problem is that the pocket operation wants to pocket out the entire shape. Ive seen some other tutorials on this but they are seem to involve v carving or far more complex operations. Ive uploaded the .c2d file below. What i need to do is pocket the inside of the crown (and all the other elements too) while leaving the circles inside untouched. I converted this file to an svg from a png using inkscape.
I know this topic has been brought up before but nothing I am trying works. I would really appreciate any asistance.
