    Default How to set contour overlap on Haas machine?

    Machine is older, it is actually Mikron Haas VCE 500, but the control is very similar/equal to newer Haas mills.

    We have problem with this machine that it doesnt finish contour (toolpath) very precise, for example if you make a circle it will leave a small amount of material around start/end point of mill toolpath (circle).

    So we deal with this in CAM software, to extend this toolpath for example by 2mm... or make 2 circles instead of one.

    But this problem occurs only on this older Haas machine, we have 2 newer and they dont have this problem.

    Is there a parameter or setting on the machine which could overlap this contour for some amount so this problem wouldnt occur?

    Thanks in advance.

    ..I see something about Setting 191 will affect tool path blending. Read more below
