My favorite task actually :D How cool would that be for me to pull a cnc out of my work van at the jobsite and start coping joints. lol I actually think this is feasible thoug...

In the toolpath preview menu I was making the 3D Finish and Vcarve toolpaths visible and then clicking "preview visible toolpaths". When I would click undo last it would undo both those toolpaths. Now I know to preview the...

Then I reset toolpath preview and run the 3d Finishing toolpath and then the vcarve toolpath. It takes my computer forever to preview the finishing ...
