Summary0003451: Need method for working on a partial profile.
DescriptionA method is needed to be able to remove material from one area of the stock profile without doing a complete profile/contour operation.
There are at least two situations requiring this:
1) The user has clamped the part on the table and only wishes to machine a couple faces without profiling the entire part. For example, machining one face of a casting.

2) The profile of the part involves a very deep recess that should be cleared from the outside in rather than with 100% cutter engagement as the cutter plows through and cuts out a chunk of stock.

The current workaround is for the user to create a 'helper object'. then creating a job for that object and adding appropriate operations.

At a minimum this process could be automated to create the helper object seamlessly in the background and use its shape for the operation.

The deburr and engrave operations can now work on open wires. This is not a perfect solution but works well enough for now. Closing this issue and will re-open if specific use cases are presented that aren't served by deburr and engrave.
