Just for information, the finishing pass with a tool of 1.5mm is about 450k lines :)

What did you use for CAM? (Sorry if you already mentioned that.)

It was a trial version of Deskproto 6.
Does anyone have any ideas about the algorithm involved in 4 axis toolpath generation ?
It might be interesting to try and develop such a software.
