Hi everyone,

I wanted to find out if i have drawn an object and revolved it.
I see when i scroll closer to the drawing it looks segmented.
Would this be a problem when i use my CNC router?
If it is how do i prevent this from happening?

    No, it will not be a problem for your CNC router. If you have revolved it, it will be a smooth surface.

    The reason the edges show segmented is because of tesselation for the computer to render it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tessellation_(computer_graphics)

    Just a note to make help topic title as descriptive as possible.  There's great info here but the next person to have this issue would never get a search hit on "Help Please".

    Happy CAD-ing,
