Is it possible to create a pocket toolpath such that it only pockets outside the surfaces that you choose? Ex: I pocket the inside of a rectangle, then mount the rectangle on a jig so that I can pocket out the outside of the piece which will have some shape. My problem occurs that if I just select the outside surfaces than it will pocket everything and just leave a thin wall that is the surface. If I select the top surface and the side surfaces, it will repocket the inside that has already been done. I also tried the restmill and told it to machine all of the material that is left over, but for some reason it goes back and machines the inside even though it is completely finished. Am I going down the right path or should I try something else or is it not possible?
Thanks for the help,
