    I am trying to ramp or helix to depth when pocketing or profiling. Unlike some other CAM programs I’ve used, I cannot figure out how to just make it ramp or helix to depth without cutting the profile. For example, I’m profiling a 4 inch diameter circle, and instead of just going

    N10X1.0Y0Z-.050
    N20X-1.0Y0Z-.100
    N30X1.0Y0Z-.150
    N40X-1.0Y0Z-.200

    It’s actually continuously ramping while doing the entire profile, here’s an excerpt

    N430(1)X0.3656Y0.0826Z-0.0094$

    This is a huge problem because my machine is old, and it’s throwing a format error when the program gets to N10000, and also it’s resulting in 600000 lines of code. I cannot figure out how to make it just get straight to Z-.210 for the first step, cut the profile, then ramp down to Z-.420, cut the profile, and then ramp down to Z-.630 for the final step and cut the profile.

    How do I do this?
