  • Compound and linking jobs to increase efficiency
  • Transformations – linear, circular and mirroring
  • Tool database – advanced speeds, feeds and usages
  • Macro database to automate drilling and pocketing
  • Detailed look into optimised roughing and planes
  • Complete finishing, equidistance finishing
  • Form pocketing, pencil milling
  • Clipping and reworking toolpaths
  • Shape offset roughing & finishing
  • 3D Edge cutting
  • 3+2 axis machining, 2D contours using surfaces
