2.5 milling feature

2D and 2.5D programming does not require the presence of a 3D model to be machined and therefore is much easier to program as selection of edges in the X and Y are all that is needed.  The z depth for each operation can be set accordingly.  This does not limit the user to only program via this method as faces and points can also be used.  Indexing the 4th axis is also enabled, but continuous 4th axis is not.
