I'm sorry Hennie, I did not understend. I understand that the cutter needs to stop and then go up, move and then go down, but did you do mean that that problem has no solution ? (Yes it's not a very big problem but I thought I have a z axis not perfecly squared to XY plane but I get the same problem on all the side of the pieces in any direction I turn ... )
thanks

The tab is like a little triangle meaning that the cutter moves up while it cuts forward.

Like many, I too have found that using 3d tabs solves the problem, but only if the CAM supports it.

Google translate is a bit rough, but for Hennie they may be accurate. Actually we also use bliksem for scoundrel.

And it is so unique to our Mother language Afrikaans.It has some other meanings also,I am going to hit you,( Ek gaan jou bliksem!) or You are a noughty small boy, ( Jou klein bliksem .) or Look at that lightning .( Kyk na daai bliksem straal ) or If you were in a bar fight of some sort and you got the worst of it then we would say ( Kyk hulle het vir hom goed gebliksem .)
