Wide cut

Post by setdesignet »

Hello all,
I am new to freecad and path workbench. Very powerful tool !
I wonder how to do a profile cut outside the part that would be double the size of my milling tool ? Since the cut is deep, I don't want chips to get stuck. So each down pass would be larger than the tool, any advice ?
Thanks
Simon

The feature has been started.

The only reason I haven't merged is that it isn't fully compatible with holding tags.
