Am I correct in saying that the only difference between a roughing cut and a finish cut is that a finish cut is the last cut? I have read all the old post, and it seams like their use to be a difference in the set up, but no more, is this correct? If this is not correct please explain.

In StlWork2 we eliminate the differences by allowing as many cutting strategies as needed.

In the original StlWork (Now StlWork lite), a single roughing and a single finishing pass were allowed. If more cuts were desired, multiple programs were required. For example if you wanted to Z level rough out a shape, then raster in X and then raster in Y, you would need 2 cnc programs with StlWork Lite with StlWork 2, you can do this, as well as limit cutting to certain strategies in certain areas, including X-Y-Z zones, water line and tangent angle areas, and no flats, and margins. Since there were so many different ways that cutting could be completed, we called the process a collection of strategies and allowed as many as were needed to complete the project in a single CNC program. In stlWork 2 you create strategies, and the sequential following of the strategies generates the program.
