Engage defines the path the tool takes to arrive at the first point of the working toolpath. The engage movement always lies on an imaginary plane that contains the work pass. This means that for the waterline operation’s moves, they are performed in the horizontal plane and for the plane operations in the vertical plane and for the drive operations on vertical mathematical cylinders defined by the appropriate curves etc.

The available engage methods depends on the selected operation type. The engage method can be defined in the approach and retraction modes window.
