Thanks for looking into this @Ruwan.
I am aware of how connected objects would cut as a unit and that's not the problem I'm seeing. The last time I had the issue was sometime late last week, either Thursday or Friday and the projects I was using was "Calendar." This is a bunch of holes and boxes, which are not connected. When cutting it would take a single pass on one hole, the z would raise, move to another hole, take off a single DOC, move again, and so on. Going through all of the holes at one depth, and then start over taking off the next depth. The project does finish correctly, but the extra traveling makes it take significantly longer. It operated this way for several jobs that day, but then the next day I ran the same project and it worked fine. And I don't modify the project between cuts except to select different objects for different cut depths, it took a lot of work to line everything up properly.
I'm sorry I have to describe this, I tried to load a video, but have not been able to upload directly on the forum and I don't want to set up a YouTube account.
I run my x-carve daily so if I have the issue again I can let you know right away. I did contact Customer Service a week or so ago, but he just said that he would mention it the developers, so.
