leave "output arcs as linear motions" UNCHECKED then the circular part of the hole will be smooth - it's just the spiral lead-in that'll end up as line segments - but with CV on Mach will interpolate a smooth curve anyway.  VM wants to make a spiral move with an R3 with a Q, if you take the Q out you'll just get an arc (not a spiral) which is almost certainly not what VM wants the toolpath to look like.

I can edit the post for the Q if needed.

When I cut a circle I wont it to be smooth without the little flats,
so witch one do I leave unchecked?

I deleted the Q from the post with no luck, it cut the hole the same.

I left the liner motions unchecked and put check marks in the other 2
and it cut a nice hole.

Thanks to all that responded to help me resolve this.
