The range of five-axis roughing strategies has been increased to match the wide list of options previously available for finishing; and now includes machining to or from a point, orientation through a line or curve, and programming using a reference surface. Using five-axis roughing can significantly reduce the number of set-ups needed to machine many components. It also can be used to give a more efficient cutting angle that will allow more material to be removed with each pass.
