I'd like to see a dedicated PP for UCCNC.  I read where some are using the Mach3 post, so maybe it's not really necessary. Does anyone know what possible conflicts there may be between the two?

I use a small FEMI bandsaw like this one (but an older model)

my model

This model exist with and without the auto feed.

The length stop is furnished

You don't need CutViewer to see the wrong path generation. Smiley I don't have it actually.
BTW, is yours Windows or Linux version?
With hatch methods I usually set the cut mode to 'mixed' which speeds up the machining because there is no need to do an empty rapid move on each stroke. And region fill mode is also 'horizontal' or 'vertical' respectively.  Maybe because you use 'inside-outside offsets' it starts in the middle.

After I posted I found some changes to the MOP that seem to work in CutViewer.

Start Corner = Top
Cut Ordering = level first

One thing I see that's puzzling is that for each level in roughing the first pass is in the center of the material to be removed and then the outside and inside are done next.

I added a finish MOP with waterline that appears to work well.

The part will be milled from aluminum but I may do a trial run with machineable wax.

The finish is not particularly critical as the prototype part was cast iron.

I am making this for a friend's locomotive.  I had to get a bit deeper into Solidworks to model it.

I just tried in CB for Linux a project containing 3D profiles I machined a few days ago.
It seems there is a fatal bug, depth increments are not respected.

Update: It seems Waterline method respects the depth increment.  Horizontal and vertical hatch methods fail.

Thinking about modifying it in true DIY mode Smiley

That's always my first thought, "how can I modify this to make it better ?"

I have a similar stand branded 'Wolfcraft' - but there's too much play to be used for precise cutting. Thinking about modifying it in true DIY mode Smiley

I use something similar to this with a 4" angle grinder.

These are the best cutting discs I've ever used, cheap, extremely thin and very fast accurate cutting.

This solution works well for me.

CB - Linux - plunge to full depth
CB - Windows - works OK
version 1.0
In Linux version does exactly what you describe but it's beyond my competence to even guess why.

Start with a Waterline Rough cut to remove the waste.
For a Finishing MOP with this circular item you could stick with Waterline but decrease step over depth etc. or Horizontal & Vertical scanline could be used to possibly give a better finish.
File attached with just the Waterline Rough MOP.
