Surfaces with complex curvature and curves that are too short or long can make it difficult to get a clean toolpath across the entire geometry. With the Mastercam 2021 release you can now control the stepover calculation in multiple ways. Short drive curves can be extended automatically to save time creating wireframe geometry.

Offsets for each pass of a parallel toolpath are calculated as slots in 2D and as cylinders in 3D revolving around the original curve selected. With Exact mode the offsets are performed across the selected surface to maintain equal spacing as the surface curves around.
