Hello I would like someone to check this out for me if you don't mind?

Running Mach(tried lockdown and newest), Using Newfangled (tried lockdown and newest) cut circle groove.

After entering parameters I select preview and all looks ok.

Select Post Code then verify tool path and the tool path changes?

Here's the code produced and I noted corrections to make it work with out lead-ins.

it seems like it sets up for the cut then does a tool comp for inner cut half way around then goes back to outer cut?

Have a look and let me know what you see.

Thanks,

Robert
