Any update on this? It appears the algorithm doesn't play nice with little tools like my engraver.

@marc again please read tracker guidelines. You need to add your full FC info (Help > About FreeCAD > Copy to clipboard) also it is customary to let the devs know on the forum first. That's how you get more publicity about issues.

CC @mlampert care to weigh in?

I'm afraid this is a known issue with no solution as of today ( OCC just released a new version and we still have to see how it'll behave.

In order to reproduce, can you attach your FC file please and your full version info (see Kunda1's comment above on how to get that)?

I've compiled FC with the latest version of OCC (7.2) and the issue seems to be resolved - however I cannot verify/test without having the actual file.
