The 3D Contour operation is designed for machining along spatial curves, and the operation can be used for machining the edges of a die or for creating a complex shaped groove. The view of the toolpath in plane is similar to
SprutCAM’s 2D Contouring operation is the jack of all trades when it comes to cutting simple parts with straight edges or when there’s an easily defined curve for the tool to follow. This basic cutting approach is great for roughing
In this video tutorial, we go over roughing steps for a 2D contour operation.
In this video tutorial, we go over the concept of chamfering a part using a 2D contouring operation.
