2D Milling Operations

 In Voxelizer there are 4 2D milling operations: pocket, engrave, contour and face. Let’s look at them in more detail.


 

  • Pocket

The toolhead will mill all the material inside of the path for the specified Final depth. With the Pocket milling method option you can choose whether the tool should follow a spiral path or a path made out of concentric polygons.

 

  • Engrave

This operation will engrave the path once. Best suited for tools with v-shape tip or with small diameter.

 

 

  • Contour

This operation will mill the outline of the path for the desired final depth. It is possible to specify an offset distance for the too, towards the inside or the outside of the outline.

 

  • Face

The Face operation is used when you have excess material that you want to remove. This operation will wipe out all your chunk of material for the desired Final depth.
