    Default absurdly long toolpaths..

    I can only get a decent toolpath out of the parallel finish function. If I try to use the parallel roughing operation I get anywhere from a 2500-10,000 minute long toolpath. It takes an hour to generate them, and there is a sea of red rapid paths leading all over. What kind of nonsense is this? If I try to use waterline forget about it. I don't have the patience to wait several hours just to generate a tool path that would take a week and a half to run.
    What the heck is going on here? anyone had a similar experience? I have been using meshcam 7.

    What's your tolerance setting under Job Setup? Try increasing it.

    I haven't seen any issues like that, but I rarely use V7. I HATE the interface, and much prefer V6.

    I have messed around with V6 in the past and prefer it myself. I will try adjusting the tolerance when I get home tonight and see if that helps I'll let you know and thank you for the advice.
