Anybody know how to prevent the routing of the perimeter of the stock?
All my jobs always want to route out the perimeter.
In MeshCAM, for the stock there is a toggle in the Finishing set up to “Not route the surface”, which I always choose, but no toggle option to “Not route the perimeter”.
To explain further, I have a piece of MDF that is 5" x 4" x .25" thick. I want this piece of MDF to stay that way. When I set up my MeshCAM job I input the stock values with the same values as the MDF piece I have prepared. All I want to do is to route out a reverse image of a metal part I have, in the middle of the MDF piece. After the MDF is “pocketed” out I can insert my part in it. The MDF becomes a holder for my part whilst I buff and polish the metal part. So I only care about the pocketed routing. Since the MDF is already cut to 5" x 4" I don’t need the 1F to be routing out the perimeter to make it those values, but for some reason MeshCAM always wants to route out the perimeter and it eats up a ton of time, and it’s unnecessary. So anybody know how to prevent this?
Maybe this? How can I avoid part of the model
That was it! Thank you very much.
