    I have to make some (automotive Carb) adaptor plates 1″ thk, going from a tri-lobe ( cloverleaf shape) to a circular port. How do I program to remove the inner radius left by a ball cutter. I can flip the part over and do a finishing cut, but is there a neater, simpler way?

    Peter,

    If you have the Pro version of the software and are on the newest update, you may be able to try something like the Equidistant Offset toolpath. You will set it up the same way as the Z-Level Finish, it just may come out a bit cleaner.
