Quick - 2D Contour Question

I am machining a small block where each face is machined .001 deeper than the preceding face. 

 

The initial adaptive clearing path left .005 material remaining for the contour path.  I wanted the contour path to remove .004 then the final .001.   I am confused as to why I had to select 2 for the number of finishing paths.  I thought I would only indicate "1" for the number of finishing paths.  Am I missing something?

 

I am trying to machine this as precisely as possible on a hobbyist machine.  Is there any other trick I can do to improve accuracy?

 

Thanks... Richard

That's because you don't have "Roughing Passes" turned on. If you were to turn that on, you would get the default single pass, but then you would also get a second pass that would refer to your Stepover:

Thanks ... That makes sense.
