Is it possible to generate multiple pockets of a specified depth normal to a 3D surface using the 5 axis continuous mode?

An example would be a sphere with several small circles disbursed over the surface and creating circular pockets, say .5 inch deep normal to the surface of the sphere.

No. Inlaying multiple pieces into free form wood and Corian bowls and boxes.

I don't see why you shouldn't be able to do it.
