Finishing pass on fileted corner after 3D adaptive clearing?

I've got a part I cut on a CNC router that has a filleted corner at the bottom of the pocket. I'm using a 3D adaptive clearing to create the pocket using bullnose bit. Is there a way to create contour or other finishing toolpath using the same bit to do a finishing pass if I leave some stock on the adaptive clearing toolpath?


The attached picture shows the model. I've seen a few posts about not modeling fillets/chamfers and instead letting bit geometry accomplish it, but I use this model for other processes and if there's a way to create a toolpath rather than modifying the model, that'd be preferred.

Blend, Flow, Steep and Shallow, Scallop. All these would get you what you're looking for.

I use ramp or scallop with this sort of feature. Just select surface to Touch and top bottom are the lines of the rad.

Thanks for the advice, a scallop toolpath got me where I needed to go! Haven't played around much with anything beyond clearing, pockets and contours...looks like I've got more toolpath fun to learn about.
