    To save cutter wear would be another. It means Not plunging into material but still being able to have Arc lead-in. Something I use often when cutting out of material were tool can't avoid plunging into material and I don't want or can't ramp.

    Yeah thats the problem with just addind a Z on the end of every line. Todo it properly it would need to read every line, figure out how long the move is and then adjust the Z accordingly. That would be alot more work... but i'll think about it.
