# Cutter Compensation

Genius

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.
