I have a few inperfections in the tabletop of my cnc router so I want to flycut the surface. Is there a way in Turbocnc to tell the software to "stepover" x or y amount per pass, or do I have to program each individual pass.

I was going to just draw each pass in my cad program and then generate the code with ACE, but looking for an easier way. This would be useful in other situations as well.

If your table isnt too big or you only want to level a few select areas i would just use mdi mode. i use it all the time as it saves me alot of time screwing around drawing,converting,exporting,converting,exporting,ad nauseum.
