ART,
Would it be possible to put a restraint, prior to generating code, such that the generated Gcode would stop somewhere along the Z?  I am thinking,  as a posting option one could say ie; the piece is 4" long but only create code for the first 2" of the profile.  So that posting option would allow one simple breakup of profile.

...actually, the roughing on this particular profile went awry here with Jan 26_2010.
Cannot make the Dec release fail.

Russ,
See if it is gouging. May also want to post the dxf and also try a Visual Intersect Diags
on it.  ???

Russ,
Zoom way in at the point and then use the TEST TOOL LOCATION in Debug and place the tool on the
upper pass. Zoom WAY out again. I my case, i can see the gouge in the lower section and then in the upper one
it is not gouging or say .0001" on rough measurement.

Note that scan line diagnostics are done with the gouging "off".

I would have thought that the path after the gouge would have started earlier.

These two pics.
Exactly the same duplicate setups.
Feb8_2010
Normal attempt, and scan line diagnostics.
