    I am a bit confused about the use_pocket_cw and use_plunge_cw settings. They seem to be related to climb milling, but do not seem (and the name suggests that) to influence the direction of the inside and outside cuts.
    Can I do climb milling with sketchucam?

    Thanks,
    Frederic

    POCKET and PLUNGE they say, and that is what they affect (-:
    inside and outside direction is affected by the 'overhead gantry' setting, so try that both ways.
