Cutter Path

Cutter path is a computer aided design or CAD term. It is essentially another name for a negative extrusion. Negative extrusion is the act of taking a 2D plane, forming a shape on that plane, and then pushing out a solid object in that shape as a cylinder from that plane. Where the shape?s cylinder passes, a hole is cut in the existing model.

Here we see the end of the first machine war, in the Matrix universe. The humans have lost, badly. They were quite simply crushed under the indefatigable strength and power of the army of machines. Yet, instead of wiping their enemy out, instead we see a use very similar to the premise of the computer game Strife, or the Borg from Star Trek.
