How to Exclude Area From Machining

Question asked by James Cull on Aug 7, 2020

Hi,

 

I am new to Solidworks Cam. I am programming an odd shaped part. I was considering making one end of the stock long and leaving it un-machined until the end to use for work holding.

 

 

I am using area clearance to machine the top first, but I cannot seem to find a way to keep Solidworks Cam (using Avoid or Contain with a rectangle sketch) from cutting this end. I think there is something fundamental that I do not understand. Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

James
