10 Milling Toolpaths for Your First 2D CNC Machining

CNC Milling Toolpaths at a Glance. CNC milling toolpaths are typically categorized as 2D, 3D, 4-axis, and 5-axis. However, the term 2D is a bit misleading since this toolpath uses the Z-axis to position a tool for depth. For example, in the image below, we have a prismatic part whose features all reside at various heights on the XY plane.

How To Choose a Stepover for 3D Profiling Be A

Almost all CNC toolpaths are based on the concept of one toolpath being offset from another by some distance; this offset distance is generally called the stepover. Most CAM software,MeshCAM included, uses a couple toolpath styles in particular with these offsets- the raster toolpath (sometimes called a zig-zag toolpath) and a contour offset.
