This operation will allws us to machine Alphacam geometries eg. Lines or rectangles…
This produce tool path along the contour.

Let’s check the Z Levels from Levels and Cuts Tab

z levels in alphacam rough or finish operation

Safe Rapid Level
The Z level that the tool can safely traverse the machining area at a rapid speed.

Rapid Down To
The Z level that the tool can move down to at a rapid speed.

Material Top
The Z level of the top of the material to be machined.

Final Depth
The Z level at which the tool will make its final pass.

In the video you will get more information.
