    Default Feature Request: No Tool Lift

    It would be nice if there were an option to prevent tool lifts on linking rapids. I've been manually generating trocoidal roughing paths and having to manually adjust the rapids to the next cut to eliminate tool lifts is quite laborious. A negative safe clearance option works to a degree, but it always has some tiny z height spike that needs to be cleaned up manually (a bug?), and it also sets the start and end z heights to the same level, which is undesirable. It's also quite finicky and depends greatly on the box-region you currently have defined.

    Would it help to increase the cut-link distance of the tool?
