hello,

Currently, for milling a non flat surface, I do probing on my non flat surface with a plugin, that give me XYZ file. Then, I import it into Solidworks for creating a surface. Under mastercam, i use the function PROJECT to project the ideal toolpath on my surface created uner solidworks and I use the result to mill the non flat surface under mach3.

That works perfectly.

But is there a way to make mach3 automaticly project a toolpath on the probing result of the non flat surface, that is to say no using solidworks never mastercam project function ?

Thanks you for your help. Regards.

PS : Or perhaps there is a plugin for doing this...
