Summary0002809: Path visualisation of helixes is incorrect
DescriptionA G2/G3 command represents a helix, yet it seems to be displayed as an arc in 3d space.

Attached are two screenshots of the same Path, one taken from FC and the other taken from its output simulated by The FC version has errors on the bottom loop on both sides of the triangular cutout.

A simulation of the actual g-code exported from that path does not show these errors and suggest that the Path itself is correct and this is a simple visualization error.
