    did first test runs with pycam toolpaths on my diy cnc and came across another thing: is there any way to control the 'plunge behavior' ?
    usually one doesn't want the tool to plunge down into the material vertically, as it puts a lot of stress on the tool.
    i've seen other programs solving this by plunging in slope/ramp or helix shaped paths.

    Hi kochel,

    sorry - for now you cannot do this with PyCAM.
    It should be possible in some months, I guess …
