    Default I want no step over

    How do I make multiple passes without a stepover. I want to cut 12 circles with 7 passes each with no stepover.

    The tool should not step over during a profile pass, UNLESS you have activated the 'Do separate last pass' option OR added allowance.

    In another thread you said:

    Make sure that first, you are working with a closed vector. Second, make sure that you have chosen an OUTSIDE profile strategy rather than an inside, or 'on'. Also verify that Allowance is set to 0 and that you are not doing a lead in/lead out down in the toolpath options tabs in the profile toolpath fill-in sheet.
