After selecting the Tool, Cycle and Status Information necessary to make a Cut, you must then select Cut from the Control Panel (or type Cut at the command prompt or select it from the Router-CIM toolbar) and you will be prompted to select objects. Pick the shape you wish to Cut and using the current settings from the Control Panel, a tool path will be generated using the parameters you have defined.
A Tool path will show up either as green (clockwise) or red (counter-clockwise) along with the Lead-In and the Lead-Out as yellow and the Rapid Moves in white.
The tool path will be generated at the Z depth you specified in the Total Cut Depth and/or Depth per Pass fields.
You may only Cut Polylines and surfaces that are on the NC_SHAPE layer.
