What is 3D Machining?
3D toolpaths are machining operations in which the tool moves dynamically in three directions (X, Y, and Z), but stays perpendicular to the machine bed. 3D toolpaths are great for machining complex or organic shapes, because they can follow the changing surfaces of these shapes. 2D or 2.5D toolpaths, which can't move dynamically in Z, are used for prismatic shapes that contain a flat bottom and vertical sides.
