Cut a multisided polygon shape

Use this option to cut faces on the blank so that it becomes a polygon. The settings are pretty self-explanatory…the only thing you need to remember is that the sizes are measured from the center of the blank to the center of the face, not to the corner of the faces. The file will cut in multiple passes if the stepdown setting is small enough, just as it does in the blank sizing routine.
