Summary0002752: Entry method dressup
DescriptionCertain tools are unable to plunge directly into the material. For instance, many cutters have cutting edges only at the periphery so they are unable to cut the area in the center of the tool. These cutters need to be moving horizontally while descending. For this type of tool, a helical or ramp entry method is needed. Other types of tools have similar constraints so alternate entry methods are needed.

Rather than modify all operations to to include options for entry methods, we should create dressup operations to modify existing paths and add the needed entry method at the desired location.
Additional InformationEntry methods needed for:
  specify location, and radius of helix (or derive from tool)

Specify start and end location.
TagsNo tags attached.

Putting this back into the pool for now. I haven't started on this yet and I have some higher priority items on my plate right now

We have a dressup for ramp entry that is very complete. It also has a helical method. The helical method doesn't used on pockets doesn't turn a helix at the entry point but rather clears the entire layer as a helix. This isn't perfect but I think is good enough for now. I suggest closing this feature.
