Looks to me as though the v-bit you're using doesn't match what you've told the software it is. Either the angle, sharp/flat tip or both.

I would guess that you've set a large stepover with a flat depth?

Where's the file? Post the file.

Yep, large stepover with a flat depth is most likely. Didn't think of that as I never use flat depth with v-carve toolpaths and stepover isn't used in that case.

The stepover for the flat might be a contributor but most of the letters don’t have a flat. So I would lean toward a mismatch between what the bit is and what tool database entry says that it is. I would expect that it is an engraving bit that has been entered as a v-bit.

Can you upload your file (.CRV or .CRV3D) to the forum?

Here is a link describing how to upload your file. (How do I upload files or photos to the forum?)

If the file is too large to upload here you can use a file sharing site such as drive.google.com, onedrive.com, or dropbox.com. They all have free accounts available
  • Upload the file to the file sharing site
  • Make the link shareable
  • Share the link to the file here
Use the Windows Snipping tool for screen shots.
