This dialog contains the parameters specific for the Contour toolpath.
The parameter set the Z coordinate at which the tool move at rapid traverse (G0).
From this position, the tool move in Z to enter into the workpiece, with feedrate (G1).
The "Feed Plane" parameter also set the Z coordinate at which the tool retract, after the processing, or before performing the move rapidly between the various profiles of the working or between the different operations (absolute).
Top of Part
This parameter set the Z coordinate of the upper surface of the workpiece/material (absolute).
This parameter set the final machining depth (absolute).
Set the maximum value of material removed for each Z cut.
Stock to leave
Sets the value of material to leave (or remove) on the profile; example, to perform a subsequent finish pass with another tool.
A positive value leaves the material.
A negative value removes material.
Number of rough cuts / Rough cut size
SSet the number of rough passes and the amount of material to remove for each rough pass.
Number of finish cuts / Finish cut size
Same to the previous parameter "Rough cuts". Allows stock removal different between roughing and finishing cuts.
Lead In / Lead Out
This dialogs controlling how the tool approaches and retracts to the part at the start and at the end of profile.
This parameter allows, in case the machining removes all the material around it, to set the supports in the chained geometry, to avoid the detachment of the part.

Method of calculation:
Defines the algorithm used in the calculation of contour machining. There are three modes:
This parameter determines the type of optimization in the execution of the cuts, when multiple profiles are defined.
Depth cuts order by:
This parameter determines the Z cuts order, when multiple profiles are defined.
This option allows you to arrange multiple parts on the same workpiece.
Performs the calculation process of the toolpath, using the chained profiles and the current parameters defined.
