I have the need to cut a lot of parts that are approx. 3/4" deep. Some are pocket toolpaths and some profile toolpaths, either way using a 1/8" and 1/4" straight carbide cutter. I am taking 1/2 the diameter of the tool bit cuts and stepping down the same. My issues are after the first and subsequent passes, the tool returns to the surface height of the material where the first cut started and then slowly travels Z- to where the last cut depth was and then starts cutting the next step down. How can I keep the tool from returning back to the material thickness level and have the next cut start at the same height as the last cut was made? This would save a lot of time, especially on several hundred cuts. I am using VCarve Desktop and have been thinking about upgrading to the Pro level for nesting and job size limitations. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
