Primary and secondary bits

Been playing with Easel. One thing that I still have a question on is selecting the bits used.
If my initial bit is a bigger bit and I add a smaller secondary bit, will easel use the larger bit to do the work it can first then ask to change bits and use the smaller one to do the finish work?


Yes, you do need to re-zero Z between operations though.

One thing to be aware of is that EASEL tends to always use the smaller/ finishing bit for outlines which is NOT always desired, especially because smaller bits normally have a shorter flute length. I normally move any outline cuts out into a separate work piece in the same project file.
