How are you getting that close with out it being pix-elated????? is there a setting im missing?

Toolpaths/Preview Simulation Quality

Preview Simulation Quality ► This controls the resolution (number of points) in the Toolpath Preview simulation model governing the amount of detail that the model will display when you Preview and toolpath. The higher the quality, the slower the speed of simulation will become. Guidelines are given on how much slower you should expect it to be but these will depend upon the performance of the PC and relative size of the tool being used to your job (the larger the tool, the slower the performance). Opens the Preview Simulation Quality Pop-up Menu:

Standard is the fastest mode and recommended for low performance PC's.

High (2 x Slower) displays better quality images and is for general use.

Very High (4 x Slower) displays good quality images, but will run a little slower.

Extremely High (8 x Slower) gives good quality images but will run slower on old PC's.

Maximum (25 x Slower) gives the best quality image, but could take a lot longer on any PC.

The overall size of the job compared to the material play a part as well. If you've defined the material as 4'x4' (for example) and then v-carve a 6" item it would be pixelated even at the highest resolution settings.

That is the modeling resolution which only affects 3D models.

You want to change the preview resolution which is under the ToolPaths/Preview Simulation Quality menu.
