Option to stop tool from retracting to safe Z when tool when connection can be made outside stock

Option to stop tool from retracting to safe Z when tool when connection can be made outside stock

I created a roughing toolpath with “follow contour” option, tool was lifting to the safe Z even when tool was outside the stock; this resulted in wasting lot of time by moving tool in fresh air at cut feed.

It would be very useful and efficient to have “connection_type” setting with “simultaneous” (same as in trajectory toolpaths) option to stop tool from retracting.
