Hello, I know I can set the depth when using the Engrave. I'm using a 60 degree bit and want to limit the depth of some of the larger objects and do a island fill and still have the 60 degree angle on the sides of the object. I would like the use only one tool (the 60 bit). I only have a couple small objects in most of my projects so I can deal with the extra time it take to cut the bottom flat with a v bit.

Thank you

You can use an Island fill and set the conic as a clean pass.
Learn to automate Enroute by seeing an example at https://github.com/PlastecProfiles/EnrouteAddin

Click 3D toolpaths when your uusing the 60 as a clean pass tool.
Make sure you are using an ENGRAVE not a CONIC and that its in the tool library as such.
(v bit with a flat spot at the tip.)
I dont know if it will let you do a FILL with a conic.
