YEAS!!!!! That's it!

I have a tool path.

Many thanks Eddy, Lloyd and others.

I can resume my work. No football today so no distraction, Max Verstappen will do his job without me.

Eddy, I could swear that's one of the things I tried.  I'll open the file once more, and try again.

OK... I'm getting senile.  I KNOW I tried modifying max crossover to a very, very tiny value, but must not have tried zero (as being 'the special case').

Sigh....

Quietly following this thread. I'm so happy I found this because my problem is getting solved already. I got gains of almost 2 inches. You can find all the information regarding how it works in the review page.
