Optimising trajectories in Machining project

Is it possible to optimise (reduce the number of points) the trajectory generated as an APT file from a CAM software in roboDK.
You can change this tolerance to reduce the density of points when you generate a robot program:
  1. Select Tools-Options
  2. Select the Program tab
  3. Set the Minimum step size (mm)
This value is 0.005 mm by default, you can increase it to have less points.

Some CAM software create a point every 0.001 mm. This may be too much for robots so if you use a tolerance like 0.1 or 0.2 mm it should be fine for most robots unless accuracy is critical.
Thank you so much.
