3D Hybrid

The Hybrid strategy combines the advantages of Contour3D with the Scallop and Parallel strategies enabling users to easily create cutting passes for both steep and shallow areas in a single operation.

Users often prefer Contour3D for machining steep areas and Scallop or Parallel for shallow areas. However, this approach requires that several operations are created and that machining angles, contact boundaries and machining boundaries are configured. This is time consuming and often the ordering of toolpaths will not be optimal.

The new Hybrid strategy provides an alternative which is much easier to configure and that ensures optimal toolpath ordering.
