pocket question

Hi everyone, I have a question regarding machining multiple pockets.
When I try to cut them, it will cut one pass on a pocket then move to
the next pocket and cut one pass and so forth. This causes a lot of
rapids. Is there a setting where I can have it cut the whole pocket
before moving on to the next one? I've tried using type_3 and that
doesn't seem to help. Thanks Wayne Aldrich.

RE: pocket question

In Volume machining under "Build Cut" you can select whether you would
like to machine the pockets (volumes) "by slice" or "by region". By
region will machine the pockets as you require.
