Modeling Issue

Post by rwebcon »

I am working with a sign which has lettering set on top of a wave model. My problem is with the finish tool path. Instead of machining around the lettering it is also machining the top of the letters. I have played with Shape Height and Base Height, but this does not help. The job will run but wastes a lot of time. I am using Aspire. Any insight into this?

In stead of using Model Boundary in the Finishing Toolpath us Selected Vectors and then select the outside vector and all the vectors of the letters.
