1 guide line vs 2 guide lines

         Hello all, 5 axis newbie here

I'm noticing my toolpath doubling in size when I add another guide curve to my unifies toolpath. I'm wondering if I should use or not use 2 guide curves.

I have 2 curve running parallel on each side of my teeth.

Only way to know is to test it and see the results after trying it both ways. If one curve gets the job done that answers your question if not then you know you need two.
