3d text in design issues


First post here but have been visiting the forum for quite some time now. I’ve had my 3 xxl for several years and it’s been a love-hate relationship. Some days everything goes as planned and others are a disaster. Anyways, I can usually find what I need by searching but no luck on this one. I’m making a rowing oar and can’t figure out why the text, the logo and the pole transition look like an 8 bit pac-man ghost rather than a nice smooth contour around the edges. I’m using CC and CM with a .5mm diameter tapered end mill. Would appreciate some tips and advice on how to fix it. File attached.

Looks like you’re bumping up against limitations in Carbide Create’s previewing/optimizations:

Hopefully will cut well enough — try it in a piece of scrap?

It cut just like it rendered. Nothimg a little sanding can’t fix, but would be nice to correct it in the initial cut.
Correction on the end mill… 1mm diameter with .008 step over.
