Rotary on Elite

You could create extra roughing toolpath only for those areas. Deskproto lets you chose the area and depth of cut. Although it might be faster to just take a chisel to it.

Yeah. Ran into this issue my first time doing an 8-sided carve. I think that, despite showing the stock as having a square profile, DeskProto is calculating it as more of an octagon, so its always milling on a flat. I was a bit surprised when I saw the depth of the roughing passes. Wasn’t a big deal since I had it configured to do the roughing pass as cross-grain cuts across the x-axis (rotary parallel to Y-axis) to reduce the shaking of my Foreman/QCW combo.
