I have an application where I need my router to cut a slope into a pocket. Not sure if SheetCam can do this. I have been all over sheetcam and can't seem to find any setting for this. If not, what is the best CAM application that can create this from a 2d drawing? I want to specify a start point, end point, and depth for the end point.

Could you not edit the basic contour tool start hight finish hight?

i have the same question. I want to chamfer an edge at at 45 degrees. I use 2d as well. Did you get an answer for this question that worked?

I would hazard a guess that to cut a sloped bottom pocket (multiple pass) that one could to it by "setting the stock at the desired angle" and then cut a flat bottomed pocket. Otherwise, you need a 3d cam program to do the job.

To cut a 45° chamfer I would use a 45° cutter and only cut to the necessary depth to get the desired results.
