The solution that you posted might be able to help me with a problem that I have. If you have time, will you please comment on the following problem?
I have 7 fractions (images/reliefs) of an original image/relief. For now I will name them A,B,C,D,E,F, and G. Theoretically, I can execute each of the fractions in any order and the original relief is formed.
In practice all of the images have the zero plane included. The effect of this zero plane is that the end mill will remove material from the portions of the block that I want dedicated to the remaining fractions. So if I execute “A”, then A is made, but all of the material above the zero plane is removed and is no material remains for fractions B,C,D,E,F, and G. (GRRRR!)
The desired effect:
When I run “A”. I only want material directly above (z-axis) removed for “A”.
When I run “B”. I only want material directly above (z-axis) removed for “B”.
When I run “G”. I only want material directly above (z-axis) removed for “G”.
After "G" has been executed, the original relief is visible.
