Can I select multiple chains in 2d adaptive clearing? Driving me nuts!

My f3d file is attached. I am trying to clear the area around the two posts on the part via 2d adaptive clearing. I must be missing something. I can choose a chain to clear around one of the posts but I cut the other off. I have tried every combo I can think of at this point. 

 

I've tried using faces contours, chains and pockets but I just can't get a working tool path. 

 

Thanks for any help with this, I am lost at this point!

No file attached, go to :-

File > Export > Select f3d format > Save to a location on your computer > Then attach to your next post.

 

As the 2D Adaptive is not "Model Aware" you might be best using the 3D Adaptive but without the file hard to say 🙂

I'm not seeing your file, could you attach it again? Or provide screenshots that give us some idea of what you're trying to accomplish?

This has come up a couple of times, only seems to be a problem with pockets. The workaround is after selecting the first profile you need to click the chain icon again for each additional profile. Something that needs tuning up as it adds a lot of extra movement and clicks, also seems to work correctly in 2d profile.

@HughesTooling you'll be glad to know that the developers have greatly improved this behavior. Not sure when they'll make their way to the public, but I've played around with it a bit and behavior is much more acceptable
