I created a simple toolpath to cut Scrabble tile racks. Simple and straight forward. I'm cutting it into 3/4" material, testing on some pine, later hardwood.
My question is concerning the plunge on the front and rear of the rack. It basically goes to the thickness of front and back at full plunge. With a 0.25 BN in pine, it's no problem, but could be with hardwood. From perusing the HELP file, it looks like the only way to control this is to use a Larger Area Clearance tool. This means two passes on the material, clearance and finish. Is my assumption correct. Is there a way to force the single pass, but using the defined pass depth?
