    Can you upload the f3d file? That's what's needed to open it in F360 and see what you're seeing.

    Hello difalkner, first of all thanks for your help , here it is the file.
    off all options i have selected this 2 toolpath for the same porpose , toolpath that i think are the best option to the are that is machined ( but i can be wrong)
    the firts toolpath , im trying to get the tool to mill in a "rectangular" way instead the way that is milling , because when reach the bottom is a lot of efort to the tool , i hope you can understand what i im rtying to explain !
    the second way toolpah i have also tried this way but the tool starts milling from the bottom to the top , and i can get it wright !
    Can you orient me in the wright way to do this ?
    thanks in advanced by your time !

    For what it`s worth I think you should use a toolpath to rough out the bulk of the material first and then it is a lot easier for the Parallel toolpath, I used the 3D Adaptive to rough out and and made a simple rectangular sketch for the Paralell that is bigger than the slope so by selecting that instead of the slope face the tool now runs past the edge a little so it is fully machined.
    I also did a simple 2D pocket to remove all the stock around the shape just so it is easier to see things happening, what is in the attached file are only some ideas to maybe point you in the right direction
    Anyway, have a look and a play around with the settings to sort of "tune it in", hope it is of some help


    Stay Safe
    Regards
    Rob
