I know Ive run across this before but how do I put some sort of a border around an area that I don't want to be machined? I am machining a piece that I'm machining in three steps, the bottom, the top, which are both done, and the sides. I made a fixture that the part bolts to so I can machine the sides, the bolt holding it to the fixture goes through the top face. I have it set up as a waterline operation but I don't know how to have it avoid that premachined area.

Hi Art, welcome to the SprutCAM forum.

Although I haven't checked the whole of this following video, it seems to be answering your question regarding using 'Fixtures' within SprutCAM: https://youtu.be/rsXSHmxMS7k
The fixture models can either be created and then imported into SprutCAM from an external CAD system or you can create and extrude fixtures directly within SprutCAM itself.

For roughing, don't forget that the roughing operations (generally speaking) only machine the workpiece, so you could define or import a new workpiece in a similar way to the method used for importing / creating fixtures.

I hope this helps?

Dave
