[solved] Cutting square corners on island

I have searched for this and so far no luck. I'm cutting an island, it's square in the middle of a heat sink. The print has square corners, my drawing has square corners but the path puts a radius matching the tool radius. Which is great for the roughing cuts, I still need to square the corners though.

I assume that is a question to QCAD/CAM. Correct?

Please attache the drawing or an example drawing which shows the issue. Thanks.

Actually it worked right. It looked funny in the drawing, but as the radius is equal to the tool radius the corners are essentially square.

A circular tool cutting follows a circular path arround a hard corner!!

Great - I moved the topic to QCAD/CAM and marked it as solved.
