Turning profile / geometry tab / model checkbox

Hi,

 

this one is for our lathe guys..

 

In the turning profile (and roughing as well) operation, I noticed a "model" checkbox on top of the geometry tab and I can't really see its purpose.

I always defined my containment with the Z range + radii, so far and never has to use anything else.

Is this checkbox intended to define a containement with a specific sketch for example? how do you guys see this option to be used?

 

thanks ,

 

Rémi

That box is used when you want to drive toolpath geometry off of a sketch. This is used when you want to manually sketch a path for the tool to follow, such as ignoring grooves or the like.
