2D Contour machine one to depth before moving on to the next

So looking over the threads the nearest I could find was this https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/fusion-360-manufacture/one-contour-at-a-time/td-p/8541858

 

I'm looking to machine one 2D contour to depth before moving onto the next instead of it back and forth doing one step down at a time on each contour,

similar to when you machine a pocket to depth instead of selecting plane, well this is the case with Hypermill and oncCNC

 

I have tried the suggestions in the link with selecting ramp instead of multiple depths but this defeats the object with a result of just ramping down with full contact on sidewall in a zig zag motion. not what I am after.

also unticked order by depth. 

 

I know the work around is to split the contours into their own cycle.

Any help would be grateful thank you

Could you share your Fusion file here?

If any two contours are less than 2x the tool diameter spaced apart, the "Order by Depth" and "Order by Island" do tend to run into issues. We have some tasks open to improve upon this experience, but nothing definite at this point in time.

Sorry for the delay, got diverted into other matters. Tick the "Preserve Order" button:
