I do understand that it is a 3D model being finished entirely.
You have a clever idea but I was just pointing out that there is another way to do some cleanup which has served well for me which is a separate toopath usually a profile toolpath and I was pointing out that if anyone was to do this on a 3D model to be sure to check the box "project toolpath onto 3D model"or else they would be just cutting air.
I was not in any way trying to take away from your initial post, In fact, I sort of like to try your idea next time.
Its not my idea, its how the software has been designed to work so its Vectrics idea
I can't see how you can use a profile toolpass strategy to enhance detail on a 3D model so some insight in how to do that would be good for all. I do use the Project toolpath option with 3D models when I want to add text, a pocket cut or some other addition to a 3D model that I am working on but I would never have considered it possible to use for this sort of thing where a particular part of a 3D model needs a bit more detail & a smaller tool is needed just for that part of the model
