Fine toolpath for multi-surface feature

I'm a user of PowerMill, and I'm trying to use SolidWorks CAM. SolidWorks CAM has different concep with PowerMill, so I'm little bit confused.

I tried to make finishing tool-paths for the smooth curved surfaces, but I didn't know how to do.  I applied 'Fine' strategy for 'Mult-surface Feature', but I got the message that "No operations have been defined for Multi Surface Feature in the Technology Database." So, I tried to add operations into the database, but I couldn't find any operation for the fine strategy such as lace (or raster) path, which is a popular path pattern supported by other CAM systems.

Please tell me how to make finishing tool-paths for the smooth curved surfaces.
