Rotary Pocket feedback

Refer to picture below.  I have 90% of the toolpath I want, but the exit move is not good, it just rapids straight up out of the part.  I want to do the same move as the lead-in (a bit shorter), so I want to exit the part in a straight line until the tool doesn't touch the wall.  Does not seem to be possible at this point.  I have the exit distance set the exact same as the entry distance.  Also, the entry distance shows like a vertical move in the little help window, but it's actually a horizontal move (which is preferred for rotary so that's good, but the help preview shows a vertical move).  It looks like the exit move setting is broken.

I thought the logical operation to get my wanted toolpath would have been "rotary contour" but it was not possible with that toolpath (my previous post is about that).

Hey Darth,

Sorry for the late reply on this. Would you still happen to have the data for this part, and could you send it to me?

Hi Seth, no worries.

I made a dummy test file for it, see it attached.  It's now a .f3z, and it took a long time to export for some reason, let me know if something seems fishy.
