    In V3 for solidworks, if you are O.D. turning a part that comes up to a shoulder, the tool will come all the way out to the outermost O.D. you are cutting before it rapids back for the next cut. This is ideal because it keeps the tip away from the part while rapiding.

    If you are turning a straight cylindrical part it will rapid back along the line it just cut(almost seems like it moves into the part), leaving a helical cut as it rapids back. How the hell do you make it come away from the part a little before rapiding for every pass?
