When would you use the cafe file vs no cage file for baking normals? are there types of meshes for which you would use the cage file and other for which you wouldn't?

If I do use a cage it's because I need greater control over the rays. You can usually get away without using a cage file in Painter, but you can always create a cage and see the differences. Normally you can get away without using a cage, but.... I will use cages for certain meshes for better bakes depending on the mesh.
