Milling design question

Is there a way to run a finishing cut to cut certain areas and not cut the entire area to save time?

Thank you!

You can use 2d machining and select an certain pocket or area. It is hard to tell with out the file or a picture. Smarter individuals will probably step in. But if I understand you that is what I would do.

If you still need some direction, would you be able to share your Fusion file here?
File > Export > Save to local folder, return to thread and attach the .f3d/.f3z file in your reply.

Sorry for the delay, busy today. I have attached that file. I'm just wondering if there is a way to do finishing cuts and not the whole part. Thank you!

The finishing cuts. on the final radius. I'm finishing with an 1/8 flat endmill. Radius are cut with a 1/2 and 1/4in. flat endmill. I'm trying to get rid of all the area the 1/8 in cutter has to go through to get to the edges to finish the radiuses. Trying to eliminate some run time! Thank you!!

You just turn on Rest Machining under the Geometry tab;
