2.5-Axis Milling

Excavation and contour milling of pockets and contour milling of curves.

Pocket milling:

  • The pocket contours are defined by 2D-curves.
  • The pockets may be nested.
  • With one call, an arbitrary number of pockets may be machined.
  • Each pocket can include islands at various heights.
  • Cascades of pockets and islands (stepped tapering) are allowed.
  • Island levels are automatically machined.

Contour milling:

  • Simple or complex 2D-curves
  • The curves are traced directly or on one side
  • Open or closed curves
