With Super-NURBS, the OSP control projects a tolerance band that is predetermined by the programmer through the series of points. Based on this, it will create a spline that is a “best fit” and may eliminate some of the points that are redundant to the spline path. This allows for a smoother tool path, and because we eliminate some of the points, the positioning feedback does not need to crunch as much data and can speed up the movements while still maintaining accuracy.
