About This Lesson

This lesson covers the Mill Facing toolpath. This is one of the most commonly used toolpaths in industry. There are many cutting options and settings to learn here. This toolpath is specifically for overlapping the entire selected boundary or stock. If you need to overlap only a portion of the selected boundaries, see 2D dynamic milling and use that toolpath instead.
