Is your ball nose cutter a tapered ball nose cutter?
Adrian wrote:It's as I suggested. The vectors are very poorly formed. If you zoom in and look at them you will see that they are not continuous lines so what is cutting is exactly what the machine is seeing.
It looks like an automatic trace of a low quality image to start with. With such a simple shape you would get much better results by manually tracing the image and creating clean vectors.
Have a look at the tracing images tutorials here - http://support.vectric.com/tips-and-tricks/select.php - for ideas on how to improve the quality of the vectors.

The Owl is cool.
You can watch the video and learn from that. It's always a good thing.
I know there are better ways to use the trace tools, but I am an old so and so and I do it the painful way.
I node edit the living daylights out of it. I trim, skim, and fix it up the way I want it to be. You get good at it after a while.
The double lines make it a good item for a "V" carving. Not sure if you have that, but if you do - that's what you should at least try. A 90 degree or 60 degree would work really nicely on that Owl.
