This tool dresses up an existing path to overcut corners on inside angles of a profile or contour operation. A cylindrical cutter cannot cut all the way into an acute corner without colliding with the model. In certain cases, it may be preferable to violate the model and ensure that the material at the corner is removed. This is especially necessary if parts are going to intersect/interlock with each other.


  1. Select a contour or profile path Path objects
  2. Click the Path Dressup.svg Dogbone Dress-up or Path Path DressupPath Dressup.svg Dogbone Dress-up

The dogbone dressup needs a straight path segment (G1) before and after the corner where the dressup should be inserted.
