Pendant Trouble

My CNC has starting diving into the material on the finishing cut. Is this a pendant malfunction or is it misreading the job? Any help would be appreciated. The roughing is fine but the finishing cut ruins the project.

Re: layout newbee

Thank you for the suggestions. I've been working through the tutorials. I decided to try one of the projects from Beki in the lab. In her tutorial she says move it around if its to large for your machine. That is what I was trying to do. If I could find a specific video to watch I'd be more than hap...

Re: 2 sided machine tooling
