Evening Gents,

The currently open, as of this post, PR-2849 has many updates compared to current 0.19 version. It might have what you need for this application. I used your file and selected the large tapered outer face for a 3D Surface drop cutter op. I set the sample interval to 0.02mm and the step over to 10%, using the tool included with the original file. I used the brand new `Circular` cut pattern with arc optimization on. The GCode is still all G0 and G1, but the results are pretty nice.

Your project file helped me identify and fix a few more bugs. Thanks for providing it.

There is no need to wait for it... Just download und use it, it's not less stable at the 0.18.4 ;)

Hi Russel,
