how can I avoid these multiple outputs in straight line?
It is PP or operation settings question?

I set 50mm (dimension of the cube) and result is the same.
Am I doing something wrong?
(Fixed contour - streamline on the same geometry same result too.)
Preview of points match with it I think.
Do you get the same results?
With cut number 1 or 0 it splits path in a half
- still no good, and workaround with using other method is no good too for other cases.
Maybe it it is some linearization thing in PP?
I opened your part and I changed the cut step to tolerances in streamline : intool and outool to 0.1 mm ,it works ,maybe a workaround for you... a solution for me...

What a great tip. I would not have thought changing the cut step to tolerance in the streamline method dialog would make such a differance. Always thought the number of points was resolved after being projected unto the part.
In general, if trying to resolve if something is a "post" issue or a "operation settings" issue, list the internal toolpath. If the data is in the internal toolpath, then it is a "operation settings" issue. If it isn't, then it is likely a "post" issue.
(note there are some things where a post change can fix an operation issue - e.g. ...\POSTBUILD\pblib\custom_command\pb_cmd_combine_rotary.tcl)

I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
yes, PP thing can be the way too - combine rotary works for rotary axis in case XYZ are not changing.
But is pitty that this not works for X/Y/Z axis.
And now I am thinking - striaght line can consist not from only one axis. It can be XY, XYZ.
So there can be multiple output too - so then PP should test if the points are layng on straight line.
Then even combine rotary could omit some extra X+A in case of milling thread on cylinder (not only A with fixed XYZ).
I dont know if PP can do it or we can programe it.
