Messy Wrapped toolpath

Hi,

 

Im trying to use a lathe with C-axis milling to produce a wrapped feature around the Z axis. However the cycle is very messy and not smooth.

 

Anyone got any ideas on how to tidy up the unwanted plunges and the stat stop motion as it spins in C, I did think about using the rotary function but it doesn't seem to want to play ball either.

Machine is a Doosan Lynx LM if it matters

 

Thanks,

 Callum

That file doesn't seem to have any Wrap Contours on it. Could you share a file that DOES have such a toolpath? If it's easier, you can export and share the Fusion .f3d file here instead of the A360 link

I Seem to have it running how I wanted as a slot, however id like to offset it and use the side of the cutter opposed to the middle, any ideas?
