Summary0004038: PathArea offsetting produces incorrect pocket path if shape is small relative to tool
DescriptionIn the attached areatest.FCStd file, I have a cylinder radius 5mm that represents a tool and another cylinder radius 14mm that represents an area to be cleared. I've created a FeatureArea to clear it.

If the user is attempt to do 100% stepover, PathArea produces extra wires.
Under similar conditions but with the shape radius at 28mm, the stepover looks correct.

This is sort of difficult to describe in text so I'm adding a post to the forum discussion with some images for reference.
