Richard, you were describing a way of doing the roughing cuts that took less time than others, but I don't recall what that was. Maybe you'd care to share it again. In slow motion. :oops: :lol:

On the 3D Roughing Toolpath dialog under Roughing Strategy, try the Z Level instead of 3D Raster. Choose either X or Y raster. Preview the cut and you'll see the difference. Also check the estimated time for the cut for a rough idea of the time difference.

Big difference 36 minutes in Z level and over 2 hours on raster. Thanks
