I changed the ZigZag operation in HeeksCNC to use the new PathDropCutterFinish class that I wrote in opencamlib. This takes samples every 0.1mm along the path and the refines the results so that the final number of moves is reduced within a deviation of 0.1mm. This means that the number of lines of NC code are less, making backplotting faster. In the example pictured, post-processing took about 1 second and then backplotting took about 3 seconds.
