Details on the Outline

I tried to process this part. But somehow I was not able to generate reasonable milling paths. The “rough” workhorse did strange things with a detail on the outline. Any advice, which combination of operations should work?

those dashed lines on the outside of the circle should not be there. I know what’s causing them (low poly offsetting artifact) and will look at how to clean them up in the roughing op. it’s present in earlier versions of KM, too.

if I can find a clean solution, it’ll be fixed in tonight’s release.

here is a workspace that attempts to use tracing and outlining to workaround this problem.

usually it’s just finding the right test case to expose a flaw. I have fixed this in roughing for tonight’s release.

I’ll test it tomorrow. Thank you for your support. :slight_smile:

How about increasing the resolution? Would that help too?

it may help. but the threshold in the code was too low (0) which means artifacts are almost guaranteed on a circle :expressionless:

I usually push new code around midnight GMT. this will be fixed then.
