preview toolpath not cutting material

Postby ElliotandNolan » Mon May 06, 2019 4:45 pm

I've defined a simple 300mm square of 2mm material, and have drawn a rectangular vector on it. I've set the cutting depth to 3mm, I get the warning that the material will be cut through, but when I calculate the toolpath all that happens is that a line is drawn showing the toolpath but when I try to remove the outside material by double clicking on it I get a warning that ALL the material has been selected, and the toolpath obviously hasn't removed any material. I've obviously missed something but goodness knows what.

Any help would be much appreciated.

It's ok thanks I think I've worked out what I was doing wrong. Sorry for the time waste.
