Hi Sudhish,


It is always one tool per sequence. But, you can have as many sequences as you need in an operation.


So, you can have a roughing volume sequenceusing tool1, then a finishing volume sequence (with the same reference)using tool2.


A very quick way to get this is to make the roughing sequence, then copy it, and change the tool and parameters as needed to get the finishing toolpath.


Good luck.
