How do I control the area to be machined?

By default, your tool path will fill the area covered by the stock or the geometry boundary. In many cases, you’ll want to more precisely define the area to be machined.

The Set Machine Region command can be used to limit the toolpath to a section of the geometry using Machine Regions. It can also set sections of the part to be ignored using Keepout Regions.

Here’s how the system works:

Machine Regions and Keepout Regions can be defined as circles, rectangles, polylines or they can be loaded from DXF files.
