In 2001 create a surface milling sequence. Under the sequence setup pulldown there is a menu option called define cut that will be checked by default.After you define the tool,parameters,etc. the cut definition menu will appear.

Under cut type

straight cut: is the same as conventional

From surface isoline, cut line, projected cuts are same as contour
