RhinoCam fully 2D puzzle bangle..

I am cutting this for someone else, its hardly an earth shattering design and i could have just done it as autoflip and rotary.. but.. I figured, what would be the most difficult way for me to do this..

Figure out the curves.. and cut the entire job as a 2d profiling and pocketing operation..

2 things i learned..

1: 2d work is trickier than it looks

2: In 2d this job will take 47mins @ 400mm/min.. in autoflip+rotary i was looking at 7 hours...

(it actually took 22 minutes to cut at +-900mm/min average velocity)
