Milling Operations
Facing: removes material across the top surface Contouring: removes material to a specified depth along a CAD geometry Drilling: uses points identified on a CAD layer to drill holes to a specified depth Pocketing: removes all material within the outline of a CAD geometry Surface of Revolution: removes all material within a surface generated by revolving geometry about the X or Y axis
