Isolations not closed

I have the problem, that quite some paths from the isolation milling are not completely closed (a really tiny bit of copper is left, which you can hardly see). That is maybe a problem from my mill but I think it would be easy to fix, if the start and endpoint of a path overlap a bit? Is there a function to generate the paths with some overlap?

What bit are you using?

Can you see this gap in FlatCAM?

Hello, I'm having similar problem. In Flatcam it took OK. What could be the problem? Please take a look at the pictures: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-mHK3CO5tb7VThHMDFBbHloN2s https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-mHK3CO5tb7Q09sazIwbXgtVmc

Is your tool diameter correctly set?

Hello, yes that could be the problem I'll test a little more and report. Thanks, Matic

Hello, I think that tool diameter is not the problem because flatcam generates toolpath to fully enclose the shape. Could this happen beacuse of backlash?
