The amount of time that can be saved with the new roughing strategies varies with the material and shape being cut, and the machine tool and cutting tools being used.  A series of trials1 has shown that a time savings of at least 40 percent is achievable. Larger reductions (up to 75 percent, in some cases) are possible when the geometry is particularly suitable for deeper cuts. The exact effect on tool life, from using a controlled engagement angle for toolpath calculations, also varies from project to project
