I did watch the Vectric tutorials, and others using Vectric on YouTube. The router didn't come with any information on how to get started, so I felt like those were the best options but they don't really cover everything and seem to be made for people who understand more than just the basics. I'm definitely a fish out of water here, I am completely lost and just when I think I have something figured out, I don't.

I didn't set a new zero when I changed tools on the one that it cut through, so that makes a lot of sense. I just switched the tools out and continued. Next time I will know, I just assumed since I had them together that Vectric would know. With all the technology these days, I just assumed it would be that simple.
Still confused on the others, like why it switched direction and why it starting cutting again.
Here's the toolpath previews.
