extrude curves along z then use surface as a cutting tool then extract the curves you need from the extruded curves.

help
can someone try this
program with 1/2 aluminum
1/4 ball end mill .025 a pass

can't get the 3 Axis Projection Pocketing
to work with levels set to .025 for each pass
cutter just plunges down to the top of the surfaces
than starts to work correctly (ignores the stock above)
also
I gave up on trying to project the curves up in z
