    +Сергей Шатунов , I think I can help.
    Let's talk a little more about this.
    I'm familiar with mill: it has a vartical cilyndrical tool, only matters the diameter, so the toolpath will spare the radius from the edge.

    As you can apreciate, english's not my first language. It's my last language 🙂

    There are many strategies for toolpaths. Mainly two: you can follow contours on planes XY, or you can follow profiles, the contours on planes XZ or YZ.

    Is there a way to "emboss" bodies? If we can inflate bodies 2mm in XY planes, we can get directly the toolpath for 4mm mill.

    +Сергей Шатунов , I wrote you to that address, it seems it isn't working.

    I'm thinking on sliding the solid to get a thick slide, as thick as the tool's diameter. I get the slide buy cutting the solid with the two sides planes:

    var slide = solid.cutByPlane(plane1)
    .cutByPlane(plane2.flipped());

    var shape = slide
    .projectToOrthoNormalBasis();

    var path = shape.getOulinePath();

    There's import of Gcode in openscad.js which may be helpful.
