They are a plastic version of the clamps and step blocks used in machine shops.
So,,, they a are all the same height and I love them.
I didnt think about adjusting the clearance. (actually, I've never changed it)
Sometimes I can't see the forest because of all the trees.
Hence my tag line.
Can you share a link to those clamps? I still use the old fashion deck screws and it works very well. But there are times that I need to clamp instead, but the metal clamps that came with my machine are pretty useless. I cut out some simple ones from Oak. But they need a different size bolt for just about every different job. I sure would like to find a clamp that is versatile for nearly most jobs.
Back to you original question, I am not sure there is a way to adjust the start point on a 3D roughing toolpath, but the roughing strategy adjustment DOES change where it starts to cut when you change from 3D raster to Z level. I am not a big fan of the Z level option because it just doesn't seem to rough out enough for me. Of course the 3D raster takes a lot more time tho...
