How to remove unecessary moves in 3d Adaptive

My 3d Adaptive toolpath is creating a ton of unnecessary moves along a vertical wall.  See attached image.  I tried to adjust the rest machining parameters to make them go away but it does not help.  Basically after making each full depth cut, it moves up and makes hundreds of unnecessary "whisper cuts" around the OD.

There's a new preview function to minimize air cutting with 3D adaptive.  I haven't tried it yet, but could be helpful.

Tolerance and Stock To Leave often play a big role in solving this annoying issue, called "whisper cuts". Can you share your Fusion file?

I have also encountered this problem. In one case the problem seemed to be cause by feature sharing the same wall in places (see pictures attached). I managed to fix the problem by moving the slot from the edge of the pocket. In this case this was fine for my design. But in another similar case I added a 2D pocket roughing with less stock to leave than the adaptive path which also worked, if a bit annoying.

tightening up the tolerance, as well as enabling some smoothing will get rid of those. It's been on ongoing thing of fusions adaptive not working "super" well with perfect circles. By default it will behave like how you've shown.
