    I think I saw this this video the other day I’m new to Bobcad. It was the arc segments being too high I believe thousands of little moves!

    What Post Processor are you using??

    If using the BC_3x.BCPST then open in Notepad and have a look at the lines shown below and check the settings, may be something there that will help.

    319. Break arcs with radius larger than? 0.01
    320. Arc segment breaking tolerance? 0.001
    321. Line segment maximum length? 999.99

    550. Break arc segments into lines (Make sure to adjust value in block 319)? n
    551. Break line segments into smaller lines? n
    552. Support only G17 Arcs? n
    553. Break helix into lines? n
    554. Convert small arcs to lines (arc length to be specified in block 555.)? n
    555. Small arc length to break? 0.0025
