This 3 Axis method generates a spiral toolpath. It can be used efficiently for circular regions.  The cut patterns generated could be in the climb or the conventional direction.  In the climb direction the cutter always moves in the counter-clockwise direction and in the conventional direction the cutter follows a clockwise path.
