Preventing cutting air

Hi I have the following test model using version 3.8
TestPlate.kmz (583.3 KB)

On the operations Pocket and Outline, How do I stop the tool starting at the top of the stock? most of the material has already been cut away with the previous operations.

Many thanks for a superb software, very impressive.

I have not added a setting to limit the Z top for a given operation. But it’s not a bad idea for a part like this. It is on my todo list to add “rest” machining, meaning it will only cut areas not already cleared. It’s a bit complex to implement for all operations, so I don’t expect to have that done for a while.
