- In an attempt to reduce hand working…after the CNC is done milling, we'll only be adding bridges…at the top and the bottom of the neck.…This is a little bit less structural,…but it'll preserve more of the nice…finish work we did on the back side,…and fortunately because our last…machining operation is a contour cut,…there's a way to automatically add bridges,…so let me show you how to do that.…First step we'll head over to the Program tab…and hide some of the things we don't need to be looking at.…And I want to verify that this path is here,…'cause that's what we'll use for our contour.…
Okay next up, I'll click this button here…to bring up Machining Objects,…and then under Regions, I'll click new Machining Region Set,…and then also select Curve,…and I'll bring in that contour we were just looking at.…So what this allows us to do is to preset the locations…where tabs will be dropped using the semi-automated feature.…And I can do that over here.…The third button from the right…is Manual Bridge Points on Selections.…
