Michael,

Thanks for the explanation of the construction (I learn something from all of your posts!).

I loved your Christmas card! Merry Christmas (belated, of course! The embroidery shop is crazy this time of year!!! And we have dog sled races coming up in January...) Hope you and yours had a great holiday and wishing you a prosperous New Year!!

Mike :D

Here's a better example,,hopefully...
1. create the two rail sweep
2. use a boundary vector for the rough and finish cutting
3. Use the boundary vector for a profile cut.

You did use the machining toolpaths. That was the only way I could think of doing something like that. The parts looked really smooth on your photos and I assumed you were able to cut the cove part using profile toolpath only. Thank you for taking time to explain.
