... I would have never done a bunch of acrobatic tricks, all in CamBam, to make tabs on a complex sloped Poly, tilted relative to X/Y plane. Smiley
But it worked as expected at the end.
This, or if the Profile could follow a Poly on Z axis ...
Thanks to the NumMove plugin.
And to Snappy too which allowed to snap to Poly ends in 3 dimensional space. Never tried it until now.

Most times I have Snappy disabled because it slows thing down too much, unfortunately I can't see how to improve on it and my 'spare' time is limited at the moment.

My previous sentence is a bit unclear. I am using Snappy all the time but not all snap points active to reduce the load. This was the first time I discovered it snaps to points in 3D space. Smiley
I first made a Profile with tabs and DOC = 2 mm. Exported to .nc and then imported it back and converted to geometry. The resulting poly appeared to be not closed as some vertical (the tool lifting part) lines were missing. I drew the missing lines using snapping and joined the parts to a single closed poly. After that rotated it and aligned to the original path.
