I am trying to make some parts with my SO2 and Fusion 360, but I am having some trouble getting my holes the correct diameter. Especially the smaller holes!

When using the CAM bore function I consistently get slightly too small holes. 0,15mm too small on average. I have tried to run the operation every way I can think off, with different speeds, different helix pitches, different finish passes/ step overs etc. And the result is pretty much the same no matter what. I ran this with feeds from 400mm/min to 1200mm/min and plunge 150mm/min in 12mm plywood. My cutter is measured to be 3,1mm diam with digital calipers. And I checked my axis travel with a dial indicator last night, they are all spot on as far as I am concerned. When I try to cut the same hole as a pocket made in V-carve pro or as a Circular toolpath in Fusion I get a better result (as good as I'm going to get it on this machine I think). This leads me to believe this is a CAM problem with Fusions Bore function. Any ideas? I would like to use the Bore function in stead of making circular pockets, because Bore is a much neater and quicker tool path, with no annoying up and down movements etc. And it is the indtended toolpath for making holes, right?
