All,
New to RhinoCAM...very new, and I'm trying to do something that may very well not be possible...so I turn to the knowledge trust here.
I have a curve plotted in three dimensional space. The curve moves about all three axis. I'm trying to figure out how to get a tool to use that curve as a path, essentially moving up and down about the Z axis as the curve moves up down. I've thought of 2.5 axis engraving, but you have to specify a single depth. Thought about (and tried) 3 axis pencil tracing, but for some reason it flattens the curve into a two-dimensional path.
Any suggestions? I'm running out of ideas here.
Thanks in advance for your help!

I think I figured it out! Seems someone unintuitive employing engraving, but it works....
