The path is a U shape with two 90 degree angles, which is what the machined tool path will look like when the tool is moved in the X ais, then Y axis, then in the X axis again. I can do a swept cut using a profile of the end mill, and the corners of the sweep are sharp, not radiused such as they would be when milling with a ball end mill.

The Engraving toolpath is a V-carve operation, which would require an appropriate cutter in corners. It could probably be changed to support a ball mill but I don't know if I'd expect that to happen, and it might look a little funny too if applied to that sort of toolpath. FWIW in HSMWorks I use a ball mill and Trace with a single line font.

I'm trying to use the Path Workbench to do a 2.5D operation. To get a feel for it first, I just created cube with a cylinder laid flat across the top, sitting halfway down into the top face of the cube and cut it out. Next, I planned to add a 1/8 inch (3.175mm) ball nose bit to the tool library, but I find myself confused by the options.

On one end I would like to emulate a 1/4" (or any larger size for that matter) Ball mill lead in, at a similar radial depth. There are times like in this case where the profile is a bit more complicated and the sweep cut feature will not work for anything above say a .005" circular sweep cut. Even if I draw a cut profile, to follow the path, it ...

That's a broad question. Are you familiar with sweeping a profile or a cut along a helical path (check help files)? You'll need to understand that fairly well, only with a ball end mill you'll want to edit the end of the helical path to curve under to the centerline.

A path enables you to create a tangent relation between a chain of sketch entities and another sketch entity. A path is made up of sketch entities that are coincident end-to-end, forming a single chain. Making the sketch entities into a block is advisable, but is not a prerequisite. You can edit paths in the Path Properties PropertyManager.

Modelling Cutter Paths. This question has a validated answer. Is there an easy way to model the typical mill cutter paths in solidworks?

I've been trying to model cut produced by a ball end mill taking an arbitrary 3D path. I know how to do this for 2D paths (and this has been discussed a couple of times on this forum), but I have had little to no success extending this to paths in 3D.
