4th Axis Projection Pocketing

Postby KentKeller » Tue Aug 22, 2017 3:04 pm

I have a Barrel shaped object with a logo inset on the side. I am trying to define the regions of the logo but the only tool that seems to work is Select Surface Areas. When I use it and run the Projection Pocketing the toolpath is wrong. So far the only way I have been able to get anything to work is to select the edges from the Select Curves as Regions toolbutton in the Projection Pocketing dialog. Not only is it extremely tedious, but I now have a large area that won't machine. I suppose somewhere there is a very small edge I missed, but I can't seem to find it.

Is there a easier way to do this? Some sort of filter to only select the outer surface or ? And if I have selected an area but it won't generate a toolpath, how do I figure out where the problem is?
