A lot of unnecessary rapids

Hey guys

Using carbide create to generate gcode. There seems to be alot of unnecessary rapids going back and forth. Instead of just pocketing around some lettering it will just mill a little pick up move to the other end of the piece mill a little and move back. It does this constantly and waste more time traveling than cutting. Any help to eliminate and keep the movement to a minimum would be great. Thanks

run the gcode through the optimizer that Lee created to help eliminate this.

Also, submit a bug report to carbide create, they are used to machines that do
much faster rapid moves, but let them know that it’s something they should look
at improving.
