Any suggestions welcome attached screen capture showing profile and a flat "check surface" on top that I''m not milling, just the cone and parabola

Constant Scallop Height

2021-6-2 · Constant Scallop Height Scallops are the ridges left behind from the cutter stepping over in X or Y to cut the next pass. A Ball Mill will always leave a small scallop. The size of that scallop can be specified as a height, and Router-CIM will calculate the step over spacing between each pass to maintain that scallop height.

125 surface finish

 · Originally Posted by RP Designs. a 125 surface finish refers to an average roughness value of 125 micro-inches (0.000125 in) which is the difference between the peaks and valley. So if you set your scallop height to .0001 you should be good. Surface roughness is much more complicated than peek to valley height.
