use of 2d pocket and 2d adaptive

Hi, I use 2d contour for ability to set tabs.  I go right to 3d pocket for clearing. Please advise as to how 2d pocket and 2d adaptive are used and for what use case. thank you, JR

2D Adaptive, for the most part, is used purely for roughing off material at a fixed Z height. It is not model aware and relies on sketches or contour selections off the part to drive the toolpath. It roughs material with a shallow Radial Depth of Cut, but Max flute length for the Axial depth.

2D Pocket is very similar in many respects to Adaptive; not model aware, requires selections etc. This can be used for roughing or finishing, depending on materials, settings, machine, tooling and workholding.
