    waveform pocketing

    we have waveform and truemill options for 2 axis pocketing; is there a way to pick the spot in the pocket where I'd like it to plunge or helix in or are we stuck with what it generates?

    Re: waveform pocketing

    surfcam support said no to picking your start placement in both toolpaths, which sucks. Recommended a couple work arounds to help, but none of them that does exactly what we want and what it does to do it creates a bunch of air cuts; so we edit out these moves in the code.
