What are the advantages of all finish passes and final finish pass?

When do we use all finish passes?

When do we use final finish pass?

 

Thanks

Good question. All I can say is I have only used "all finish passes."

 

I can not think of a reason for using "final finish pass" other than if you had a negative cutter comp value to size a wall, and did not want the passes that were cutting a pocket floor up against a wall to end up cutting floor and wall at the same time.

All finish passes and final finish pass

This is related to finish passes for example in cavity:

Here you add 3 finish passes.

So in cutter compensation you can decide if you want to have cutter compensation on very last finish pass or on each one - 3.
